Alaskan Camper Cupcakes, Roast Marshmallows Over a Blazing Fire, and Make a S'more!

Chase is bringing cupcakes to preschool tomorrow. Since we have been spending more nights on the beach these days, he wanted some sort of camp fire scene. This is what I came up with...

Chase wanted all of his friends to be able to pretend they were roasting marshmallows over their fire.

Cute little fruity fire

The marshmallows on pretzels are a perfect little sweet and salty snack to have at home!

Don't these look perfectly gooey and delicious??

Ingredients:
Cake Mix of Choice
Frosting of Choice, We thought Chocolate would look like the ground
Graham Crackers
Mini Marshmallows
Pretzels
Green and Yellow Sprinkles
Candy Orange Slices
I think we had the most fun exploring the candy aisle at the grocery store, deciding what would make the best decorations!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We assembled the edible decorations while the cupcakes were baking. The fire is created from the Orange Slices (Cut in half, and then half again) I used 3 little triangles for each fire. Pretzels were broken in half, which become the logs, and then we finished the fire off with some yellow sprinkles for a little sparkle.
For S'mores, graham crackers and hersheys chocolate bars were broken down into tiny squares. I attached the chocolate, cracker and mini marshmallow together with chocolate frosting.
So, frost your cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting, sprinkle with green grass sprinkles, add the campfire, s'more and marshmallow on a stick and there you have it...
A fun little Alaskan Camper Cupcake!
