Third grade just completed the process of clay cupcake making! It was quite a bit of fun as you can see below. Students used silicone cupcake molds to help form the bottom which I bought at Michael's (see picture at the bottom of this post). Two coils were rolled out and put together to make the icing. Cherries were optional. Students selected one color glaze for the bottom and one color for the icing (we used Mayco Stroke and Coat). Sprinkles were dabbed on at will in as many colors as desired.
I love how these can be used as a secret hiding place for small treasures!
The clever post that helped me through this process is: Art with Ms. Gram
