Cake decorating craft for kids

Kids love things that look like something they are not!

This great craft idea from Awana at home is pretend “spaghetti and meatballs” with “tomato sauce”. And it’s a delicious cake dessert.

It is easy to make at home, or even with a small group in a club, because you can buy pre-baked fairy cakes and have the decorating materials ready.

To find out how to make the delicious and fun dessert, visit the Awana at Home blog, ApPARENTly Blogging, for all instructions and some gooey, mouth-watering pics.

    I’m finding more and more resistance to using food due to allergies. Even kids touching the food can cause problems.

    Are you having the problem in the United Kingdom or is it just an American problem?

    Any suggestions?

    You make a very good point, Wanda. And yes, there are problems with food allergies here in the UK.
    I agree with you that we need to be careful in choosing activities that suit all the kids in our group.
    We once had a Holiday Club where orange squash was laid on for the children, with biscuits, etc. One wee boy (a somewhat active and even wild fellow!)thanked us, but refused the drink. What he said still brings a smile when I think about it: “No thanks. It’s the Eeeeeeees.”
    He meant the E-numbers that designate food colourings and additives in European products. It had been discovered that some kids reacted by being hyper-active, etc. So his mum had put him off anything with “Eeeees” in it, including the orange drink.
    The wonderful thing was, the following year when we had the club, he was as calm and cooperative as could be, listened well and entered into everything sensibly!
    So yes – foodstuffs need to be thought through with care.

    By the way, Wanda, do you have some sort of form for parents to fill in for your children’s work, detailing such medical, food, behavioural difficulties?

    Thanks for chiming in. It’s good to have your perspective.
