Royal Wedding – celebrations and cupcakes

April 27, 2011

I’m guessing some of you won’t even look at this blog post due to the fact it has ‘Royal Wedding’ in the title – but I am quite enjoying all the celebrations and excitement that surround the upcoming wedding! It has been made even more fun by the fact that I have spent a lot of my time in Grace’s school recently, helping them prepare for their Royal Wedding celebrations and I have seen the buzz that it has created and the wonderful things the children have made.

I started a few weeks ago by helping with the sewing, which is going to be made into a celebration quilt. All the children in the school have now sewn a square for the quilt and they look brilliant.

Yesterday I gave the Year 2 children a quick demonstration on how to decorate a wedding cake and matching cupcakes. They were so interested and asked lots of questions – it actually made me miss teaching! Today I went in and, along with a fabulous team of parent helpers, decorated nearly 400 cupcakes with the Year 2 children. Later in the afternoon they dressed as waiters and waitresses and served the cakes to all the other children in the school.

All the other classes had worked hard too with the Year R children making Royal hats, the Year 1 children decorating plates, the Year 3/4 children performed wonderful maypole dances and the Year 5/6 classes made scarecrow versions of Prince William and Kate Middleton and did a Royal dance to show all the parents. It really was a wonderful afternoon, not only celebrating the Royal Wedding but all also the amazing talents of the children and staff at the school.

The afternoon ended with the opportunity to look round the school and see all the lovely things the children have been making followed by tea and cakes. All the cakes were donated by parents and what a wonderful spread there was! I made a batch of cupcakes and decorated them in red, white and blue – the theme for the event. I even made some bunting to go on a few of them. I do love bunting!

We’re off to a party and BBQ with friends on Friday and to watch the wedding on the television. I shall, no doubt, be making more cake to take with us! What will you be doing on Friday? Are you looking forward to watching the Royal Wedding or are you fed up with all the coverage and avoiding it at all costs?
