Last week, MacGyver celebrated his 11th birthday at his annual river party! Moms how does this happen? How do our babies grow-up so fast and how can we stop it? I know, I know, I have to let him grow-up. But why? Really, tell me why! Okay, now that I’m over that emotional distress, let’s move on . . .

Kid Planned Birthday Party

We don’t do the pre-packaged birthday party thing. We attempt to keep things simple, less commercial and personal. I let the kiddos pick their own “theme” and design their own cupcakes. MacGyver threw me for a loop when he told me he wanted to design Pocket Frog cupcakes. We don’t even have the Pocket Frog Game App. Apparently, he played it with a friend and thought the frogs were really cool.

There is one thing I’ve learned . . . to never doubt the ingenuity of my children. MacGyver wanted Pocket Frog Cupcakes and guess what he made himself Pocket Frog Cupcakes. Yep, we probably could have bought them at the local grocery store, but that wouldn’t have been as personal or thrilling.

Step 1: Draw or Print Pocket Frogs and Make Cupcake Toppers

  • We cut out the little frogs and glued them on toothpicks.
  • Then we set them aside and let them dry.

Step 2: Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cupcakes

  • MacGyver wanted to bake our 2 Ingredient Pumpkin Cupcakes. Fine with me! They are so easy and the can of real pumpkin makes me feel like I am serving healthy cupcakes.
  • Grown-ups and kiddos both like these ultra moist chocolate cupcakes.
  • We baked the cupcakes in brown Kraft-paper looking cupcake liners to create the look of a pond.

Step 3: Ice Cupcakes with Whipped Cream Cheese Icing

  • They can be messy! No fancy pipping necessary! At least that’s our philosophy.

Step 4: Sprinkle Cupcakes with Blue Sugar Creating Water in the Pond

  • We often use colored sugar so we can skip mixing-up colored icing.
  • Quick and easy. The kiddos don’t need any help.
  • At this point, I’m in the other room napping . . .
  • Ha! I’m not crazy. I don’t want icing and sugar all over my house!

Step 5: Top Cupcakes with Dried Kiwi to Create Lily-pads.

  • Miss Engima came up with this design idea. I was seriously impressed! What a good idea. And the dried kiwi slices don’t get rotten or runny like fresh ones.
  • I poked a hole in each kiwi slice with an icepick before the kiddos placed them on the cupcakes.

Step 6: Add the Pocket Frog Cupcake Toppers

  • Since I had already poked holes in the lily pads, the kids could easily assemble the cupcake toppers.
