microphone rock star cake

micphonebirthdaycakeToday we’re launching our new “rock star” birthday party theme complete with cool and creative décor (that would be perfect for any American Idol party).

  • 12 colored ice cream cones
  • 1 large bag jelly beans, M&M’s, or other preferred small candies
  • 1 can (12 oz) whipped chocolate frosting
  • 12 baked cupcakes, paper liners removed
  • 1 ½ cups chocolate sprinkles
  • 12 (3-inch) lengths of black licorice laces

Check out parenting.com for the how to! Happy baking.
