Rock Climbing & Colorful Cupcakes

11.16.2010
A friend of mine hosted a rock climbing party for her daughter last weekend so I got to help with the details... including baking 3 dozen of these fun brightly colored rock candy cupcakes. I used basic yellow cake and chocolate cake recipes, both with cream cheese frosting, and decorated with cake cups & sprinkles from the layer cake shop as well as large chunks of rock candy. The lighting wasn't the best for photography in my kitchen, but the first 2 shots are after baking. The rest of the photos are from the party itself, including rock embellished invites, rock candy favors and a few of guests making their climb up the rock wall...

  2. A rock climbing party sounds like so much fun...I absolutely love the rock candy on the cupcakes! That could be used for so many other themes-the first one that comes to mind is the all the art parties that I've seen lately.

  4. Thank you for all the brilliant ideas Becca! The cupcakes were divine and best of all Cali had a great time at her party. I guess that was the topic during recess with her friends at school.

  10. The rocks are just plain stone beads from a craft shop, painted in bright colors and hot glued.
