Hi everyone,
my little one is having his birthday next week and I stumpted for cupcake flavors/combinations that he and his 4 year old friends will enjoy. Any ideas? Oh, and it's Scooby doo theme if it makes any difference.
Thanks in advance.

thank you, The lis is quite overwhelming. Which ones will be child friendly? I'm specifically interested in what works for preschoolers.

Speaking as a retired Kindergarten teacher your best bet is a white cupcake with plain white icing. Of course you can color it and do decorations but that's the combo that will work the best. Sorry to burst your bubble.

Thanks you all.
I made cookies and creme cupcakes and vanilla buttercream. They were a big hit. Even the teacher was suprised kids ate cupcakes, she said normally they just lick the icing.
Thanks a bunch!!!

I would also recommend doing something simple like all vanilla or vanilla/chocolate.

Even though my nephews are growing up (13, 13 and 16), they still haven't branched out much beyond basic vanilla and chocolate. Crazy Aunt Sue who likes to play with flavors still makes them REALLY cautious LOL
