Baby Jesus Nativity Party and Candy Cane Favors

Happy Birthday Jesus Party!!

Baby Jesus Nativity Cupcakes

For these cupcakes I used a grass tip to make the hay, and rolled the baby out of fondant. His halo is also fondant. You can’t see it in this picture, but I added edible glitter, because, well, I think Baby Jesus would sparkle.  :)

Here is one of the trays.  The kids loved them, but I think the parents loved them more!!

I Chocolate Dipped Candy Canes for the kids in the classes too.  I attached The Story of the Candy Cane, and our Christmas Tag.

Our Christmas Tag tradition

I print 2×2 pics at Costco.  I get 6 on a 4×6 pic.  Then I cut them out, and Glue them on Colored card stock. Punch some holes, and attach with glittery pipe cleaners or ribbon.  I do these for ALL the Christmas presents.  Family and Friends love to get them every year.

Candy Cane Story

Here is the story attached to the Candy Canes.  You can download a printable word doc. version on my yahoo group, so you can put your family’s name on them.  Look under Christmas Fun.

Manger Foot Prints

I went into Jack’s Kindergarten class and painted all of their feet.  What a great time!!  There is nothing like a bunch of 5-year-olds giggling themselves silly!  “It tickles!”  “Hee Hee Hee” “I can’t stand it, it’s too funny!” “tickle tickle tickle!!”

Candy Bark

Yummy Yummy!

While unwrapping all the candy canes, a few broke.  Soooooooo, I crushed them up, stirred them in the chocolate that is left, pour it on to a piece of parchment paper, and let it cool.  Then you break it up, and serve.  Yummy!

As for the Candy Canes that you do dip.  Parchment paper is awesome!  I use candy melts from a cake supply store.  I melt in a glass measuring cup in the microwave, stir, and dip.  I hold each candy cane with a paper towel to avoid getting sticky.  Be sure to add sprinkles before the chocolate hardens.

Once they cool, Bag and Tag them!!
