Cupcakes Are Fun for Birthday Parties!
Cupcakes are fun and super easy for birthday parties. Here are a couple of my favorite cupcake books, by my favorite author. I own both, and between the two of them most cupcake occasions are covered!
This is my absolute favorite cupcake book!

The Top Four Steps To Planning A Great Birthday Party
- Plan plenty of activities and games. You don't want twenty children full of energy with nothing to do.
- Planning your party ahead helps take the stress out of the big day. Don't forget to recruit extra help for the big day. You can't do it all.
- Let your child help you with the planning process, it is their big day. Don't forget to include them in the plans.
- Let your child know what to expect. Talk with them before the big day about the proper reaction to presents (whether they like them or not), and how to behave properly with so many friends and classmates around.
