Here’s a quick and simple play by play on how to make these teddy bear cupcakes come to life. (Right before you eat them or share them of course). Great for a cute little toddler or preschooler birthday party, don’t you think?
Teddy Bears are Special Friends
When my kids were small they were crazy for all the teddy bears and stuffed animals. One weekend we went to a local children’s museum and they had a teddy bear picnic complete with pretend hospital setup. We were able to get the bears each a check up right there. My girls loved that.
And of course over the years we have had many fun excursions to Build-A-Bear. My favourite idea here is to use these as the treats at a Build-A-Bear birthday party celebration. OR, you might consider doing an adoption day celebration at the venue and sharing these with the attendees. Maybe that’s a small family celebration and maybe it’s a big party for extended family and friends. Either way these cupcakes work.
If you do make these please don’t forget to come back and leave me a comment telling me how they turned out. And as a matter of fact, here is a cute little teddy bear colouring page I have over on my Pinterest Free Printables page. There are dozens of free printables and great recipes there too. This is one of my most pinned cupcake recipes.
