Bake and Decorate Cupcakes

Kids will enjoy honing their piping and cake-decorating skills on devil's food cupcakes. Fill several pastry bags with Swiss meringue buttercream, which can be left white or tinted (each bag filled with a different color). Have assorted decorating tips on hand so kids can experiment with a selection of piped designs. Before they decorate the cupcakes, have them practice their designs on pieces of parchment paper or aluminum foil.
