I've volunteered to do a crafting session for a bunch of adult volunteers (sort of a team building event). I'll have an hour+ to work with and about 20 adults. Any ideas/pictures? I thought we could do a couple of stations to make a few different cupcakes. Maybe going over each station & the tools at each before dividing them up? What do you think? icon_smile.gif

That sounds like a great idea. I allows you to let ppl in on what you do, could bring potential customers and at the same time yr supporting your event icon_smile.gif

your setup sounds fine. Incorporate different edibles too that they can play with ie: dragees, sprinkles, sugar pearls etc

are you wanting them to make toppers? Hmm... if I was doing it, I would have them all sit down and make two toppers (that's probably all the time you'd have). Maybe a quick rose, like this one:

And for the other, perhaps provide them with some cutters.

Then have the icing already in the bags ready to pipe. Do a very quick demo on a basic swirl, rose, or whatever else you think they'd like to do, then let them have at it! Perhaps provide take-home boxes for sale, or giveaway, however you're doing it.

Oh, I like that idea! Duff's rose! Hadn't even thought of that one. Thanks you!

I have been approached to do the very same thing for my neighborhood Women's Association. I was thinking about teaching them the basic swirl, the rose swirl and a simple drop flower. I am afraid that just learning to handle the piping bags will be time consuming enough so I will not do any fondant toppers.
I may introduce two-toned techniques and leaves. Can't wait to hear how your event turns out.
Good luck
