From his car bed, to the little cars I find in my purse on an occasion, nothing makes him happier than something with wheels.
So for his 4th birthday, I decided he would love a car theme for a party at his preschool.
However, I am short of time so I needed something quick and simple.
Putting on my thinking cap at the grocery store, here's what I came up with.
Here's what you need:
- Cake mix
- candy sprinkles (optional)
- Mini Snickers
- Hershey's Kissables (colored)
Frost and sprinkle candy sprinkles on the cupcake.
Take 1 mini snicker and push 4 colored Hershey's kissables into the body of the snicker to act as wheels.
The point on the kissables will act similar to a thumb tact and the shell will be hard enough to push into the snicker.
That's it! I was so happy that these cupcakes, as simple as they were, turned out so cute.
While I was making these cute creations, I thought of more ways to use these little cars.
Train - make several cars like above, and attach each car with a thin licorice lace.
To make the engine, attach a rolo cut in 1/2 on top.
Bus- Use a regular sized snickers bar, attach several wheels under the candy bar similar to a bus.
(4 on each end for a total of 8 wheels) Semi truck- First, create the trailer from a regular sized snickers bar and make the truck out of a mini snickers.
You could shape it to look like a truck by stacking a small piece on top of the small snickers so it is in the shape of an "L"Attach trailer to the truck with a small piece of thin licorice lace.
I'm so excited to bring these cupcakes to preschool tomorrow as I'm sure the kids will love them.
Of course I know the first thing my son will eat are the wheels!
