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??

Cake Mix of Choice
Frosting of Choice, We thought Chocolate would look like the ground
Graham Crackers
Mini Marshmallows
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!
