    Default Cake or cupcakes?

    We're planning a Teddy bear pinic for a bunch of toddlers for the late spring. We're trying to decide whether we should get a bear cake or a bunch of bear cupcakes made? What do you think would be more fun or easy for toddlers? I'd say the youngest will be 1.5 and the oldest will be 3.5.

    Everyone coming will be doing their own "picnic" (Ie they bring their own sandwiches, juice, etc) but i thought that it would be nice to have a dessert for everyone coming.

    I would do the cupcakes. It would be easier really, no cutting and you can decorate each one so each toddler feels like they got their own special one. Have fun!

    cupcakes for sure! Yopu can arrange them to look like a cake.

    I would do bear cupcakes. Much better choice for a picnic, I think.

    I think that we're going with cupcakes! Okay - spam me with pictures of bear cupcakes. I need to figure out how the heck to do icing. So sad that I've never done fancy icing on a cake before and I'm going to attempt this. I hope they don't turn out looking like poop.

    If you want a really simple cupcake, just put a teddy graham on top.
