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!!”
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!!
