Dora’s Big Birthday

Working hard on our Dora Cupcakes

On Sunday, we celebrated Dora’s Big Birthday.  We invited some friends over to watch the new Dora birthday special.  Once everyone arrived we all made Dora cupcakes, using the instructions here at  The cupcakes are simple to make and would make a great activity for a Dora birthday party and it doubles as dessert!

Making Dora Cupcakes

I made regular cupcakes from cake mix and frosted them using light pink Strawberry frosting.   The kids started with the Dora hair that I made out of melted chocolate using the template that is part of the NickJr. instructions.  Then, they piped on white Betty Crocker cookie frosting (in a tube) for the outer part of the eyes.  The inner part is a chocolate chip.  We then used a black gel frosting pen to make the nose.  The mouth is the corner of a Target Archer Farms Strawberry Fruit Strip.

WHA-LA!  Dora Cupcakes!

 Even my husband wanted in on the action!  Look at his focus!

Making Dora Cupcakes Takes FOCUS!

There are so many uses for these cupcakes - birthday party activity, birthday party dessert, play date activity, play date snack, girls get together activity, rainy day fun!

Now if only NickJr. would put out a Diego hair template.  Hmmmm….let me get out my art pens!
