Microphone Cupcakes from Wonder Kids

Ingredients

  • 12 baked cupcakes {I made strawberry} 

  • 1 container chocolate frosting

  • 1 2oz container black sugar sprinkles

  • 2 cans silver Colormist food color spray

  • 12 jumbo size ice cream cones

How to make

Make a batch of 12 cupcakes, either homemade or a boxed mix. Any flavor.

Lay a sheet of parchment or wax paper down and and
 set out 12 ice cream cones upside down.

Spray with the silver Colormist and completely cover them.
Let dry.

If you used cupcake liners remove them and discard.

Frost your cupcakes with a dark frosting such as chocolate.

Pour your black sugar sprinkles in a bowl.

Carefully dip each cupcake, frosting side down, in the bowl of black sugar, covering he frosting completely.

When your cones are dry, set each cupcake in the silver cones 
You may have to trim some of the bottom off  in an angle to make them fit. 

DIY Harmonica

Harmonica

What you'll need:

  • 2 Popsicle Sticks ~ We used the wide ones

  • 2 Rubber Bands ~ You could also use string

  • A strip of paper the same size as the Popsicle Stick

  • 2 toothpicks cut the width or just wider than the Popsicle Stick

Here's how to make them, they take 2 minutes to make.

  • Sandwich the paper strip in between the 2 Popsicle Sticks

  • Wrap a rubber band around one end until it is snug.

  • Slide a toothpick to the inside of the rubber band.

  • Sandwich the last toothpick at the other end of the Popsicle sticks, and wrap with a rubber band.

We found it worked best when we placed one toothpick on top of the paper and one toothpick under the paper.
