My son and I are entering a Mother Son bake-off contest at our PTA's Mother Son picnic this week. Last year we made the popcorn cupcakes and won; they were easy for my son to actually make. I'm looking for something that will look great, be easy enough for my 10 year old to actually help with, and (hopefully win!) Could be a cake or cupcake entry. Thanks for your help!

www.oldvillagebakery.com has a great cupcake section. Someone posted about this site earlier this week and they have great ideas! I love the fuzzy monster cupcakes.

Good luck!

how about a giant cupcake cake?

Flourgrl did this really cute one:

Or you could do any of the food cakes like...hamburger & fries, hotdog, taco, etc. That would probably be easy enough for your son to help with & sounds like fun.

Does he have a favorite? When I made a cake with my son - he was into trucks - so we did a truck cake. He used cookies as wells - and things like that - but then he was one 4 at the time.

With the hamburger cake, he can roll out the fruit jellies for the ketchup, lettuce, etc, and add the mini choc chips to the top of the bun as seeds. We served our cake in a styrofoam to-go container, and added shoestring potatoes for fries.
