Junior MasterChef Party - with a crafty twist!

Junior MasterChef Cupcake Design Comp entry
Junior MasterChef has been a huge hit with kids of all ages. In response to our recent popular posting Kids Masterchef Party, we have thrown another party - this time with a crafty twist! This Junior Masterchef party plan works like magic and was a hit this weekend with the girls.

All girls received upon arrival their very own designer Hip Hostess Apron

As a warm up activity we designed Candy Kebabs. These are simple to assemble with colourful lollies, strap, snakes, marshmallows onto a bamboo skewer. Party Tip: Spray the stick with Canola Oil to ensure lollies feed thru easily.

Candy Kebabs were placed in a plastic bag decorated with ribbon bow

Next we prepared Chocolate Mousse. This activity illustrated measuring skills, melting chocolate, whipping cream and folding ingredients. The end result was enjoyed by all the girls at the party table.

Vanilla Cupcake Baking was next on our Junior Masterchef party plan. Girls followed the Vanilla Cupcake recipe instructions working together and delegating key tasks: sifting, measuring, mixing using the Kitchen Aid, spooning into the cupcake wrappers.

 An essential party of any party plan is in fact, the planning ahead. We had pre-prepared a batch of cupcakes ready for the cupcake decorating challenge. The cupcake decorating activity Ranked Number 1 for the girls at this party. Girls could choose from an array of various fondant cupcake toppers, coloured dream whip icing, coloured shredded coconut, M&M's, lollies, mini marshmallows, silver cashells etc.. The key was to have a large choice, so the cupcake designs were original and varied.
