Camp Out -OR- Boy Scout Cupcake – A Kid Friendly Thing To Eat

And, of course Girl Scouts! 🙂 These are fun. The tents are made from lollipop sticks and fruit roll-ups. The cupcake is the fire pit, and I added a little S’more  to the campsite. Here’s what you’ll need to make your own.:

  • Prepared Cupcakes
  • Orange Frosting
  • Red Frosting
  • Lollipop Sticks – 5 for each tent
  • Fruit Roll-Ups – 2 for each tent
  • Hot Glue Gun & Hot glue
  • Pretzel Stick
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Plate for each camp

Now, Here’s What To Do:

Tent: For Each One

  • Glue 2 lollipop sticks together to make an X. The Top portion of the X should be narrow, and the bottom portion should be wide. Use this as a template to make another X.

  • When the posts have dried (lollipop sticks) Set them in the place you have in mind for your tent, with the narrow part of the X on top. Space them about 4 inches apart. Glue the 2 X’s to the Plate. Place the 5th lollipop stick across the 2 X’s, cradling it into the narrow part of the X’s. Now, you have your poles for your tent.

  • Unroll your Fruit roll-ups. Trim the roll-up at the top, so it fits in-between your X’s and onto the middle post. Starting at the top post press the end of the fruit roll up onto the post. Then spreading the fruit roll-up out -like a bed sheet, press it onto the 2 side posts. Wrap any extra around the post.
  • Do the same with the other side. You have a fruit-roll up tent!

  • **If you have extra fruit roll-ups, you can make a sleeping bag and pillow. Save the wrapper to the fruit roll-up to place your sleeping bag and pillow on. Otherwise it will stick to the plate.

Cupcake: For Each One

  • Frost the cupcake with orange frosting.
  • Add a little dab of red to the center of the cupcake.
  • Use a toothpick to pull the frosting up into flames.

S’more:

  • Use frosting to glue the mini marshmallow to the pretzel stick for a S’more by the campfire.

***I made these for our little den of first grade boy scouts! I promised cupcakes for the year end pizza party. Of course, I had no plan. & once I thought of these, I wasn’t sure how it would turn out. The picture in my head does not always manifest into something good!  Luckily it worked. If I didn’t have to squeeze this into Connor’s nap time, I would have liked to go crazy with accessories! So fun! I hope you enjoy them!

  • Here’s a tip for the fruit roll-ups – As the roll-ups to warm up they started to tear as I unrolled them. I popped the roll-ups in the freezer for a couple of minutes, and they unrolled perfectly. Don’t worry about a couple of tiny tears, they stick right back together.
