5 Cupcake Ideas for the Reluctant Class Parent

I’m sure I’m not the only one who volunteered to bring cupcakes to my kids school this week. Did you, too? I came up with 5 ways to make sure we don’t regret volunteering!

  • Grinch Stole Your Cupcakes 1 of 5

    Decorate with Grinchy colored icing. While everyone will think it's a festive color, you'll know the what this color represents: THE GRINCH. Consider it your own little inside joke.
  • Secret Message 2 of 5

    What are your true feelings of making cupcakes? Love it? Meh? Decorate a few cupcakes for you and the other parent who said yes to cupcake duty. Take a wild guess what my feelings are. . .
  • Make it Easy! 3 of 5
    Make it Easy!
    Buy a store bought mix. Funfetti has been around for over 20 years. That makes it a classic, right? Totally acceptable in my book! And delicious!
    Buy Funfetti by the bulk at Amazon
  • Let the Race Begin! 4 of 5
    Let the Race Begin!
    Not enough time to make the cupcakes? Speed things up by making it a race! Buy a box of cupcakes, gather all the supplies, and have your kids race against the clock. It would be a fun way to involve your family and get the job done. FAST!
    Use the stopwatch on you iPhone or buy one from Amazon
  • Safe Travels! 5 of 5
    Safe Travels!
    Make sure you get your cupcakes to the classroom safely! You don't want to ruin your efforts by having them tumble over. A lot of people suggest placing them in a box with glue dots. Have you tried this? Does it work?
    If it works as good as everyone says, buy Glue Dots from Amazon
