I thought these carousel cupcake from Betty Crocker were so perfect for a child’s party (maybe in another color for a boy!). If you’re going somewhere with a carousel, these would be a fun treat! And so easy that the children could help, too.
6 pretzel sticks
1 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips, melted
6 animal crackers
1 container (1 lb) strawberry whipped ready-to-spread frosting
6 unfrosted cupcakes, paper baking cups removed
6 small paper beverage umbrellas
Dip 1 inch of one end of each pretzel into melted chocolate chips; press on back of 1 animal cracker. Place on sheet of waxed paper; let stand until chocolate is set.
Meanwhile, spread frosting on sides and bottom of cupcakes. Sprinkle with candy sprinkles. Insert 1 animal cracker on pretzel into each cupcake. Place umbrellas in center of cupcake.
