A few weeks ago I went to a birthday party for one of my first graders. Art is her very favorite thing so she had an art-themed birthday party. I was quite honored to be invited AND to be asked to sit right next to the birthday girl during the party. :)
I was inspired by the art-themed cupcakes her Mom made for dessert. I thought they were pretty awesome, so I attempted to recreate them to bring to my last art classes of the year.
After making and frosting my cupcakes, I melted 3 different colors of melting chocolate. One by one, I filled a plastic zip-lock bag with each color and cut a VERY small hole in the corner. Then I just squeezed the chocolate onto tin foil, trying to create a scribbly/painty look. I layered each color until I was satisfied with the "composition". After letting them cool and harden, I stuck them into the frosting.
I thought they were neat...my students didn't seem that impressed. They were more interested in just downing all that sugar. I guess I need to teach them more about the value of abstract melted chocolate art. haha
