My pool party cupcakes, for example, are as fun for middle schoolers as they are for preschoolers (and just as fun for the kids to decorate, too).
And my ice cream cone cupcakes are a clever way to tease kids. They look like ice cream cones, but there's no ice cream at all. The whole cupcake is baked into a cake cone.
Try all of these recipes and decorating ideas, and be sure to post reviews.
