When I was young, you could often find me in our sweltering farmhouse kitchen, whipping up a delicious dessert from one of mama’s 1950s cookbooks. I loved the whole process, from start to finish, even though we didn’t have air-conditioning in our house back then–ha! I still adore baking, and I love making cupcakes! Cupcake coloring pages are my gift to you today. Grab some colored pencils, glitter colors, or crayons because they are just waiting to be “decorated!!” Unleash your creativity!
Choose your favorite “flavor” of cupcake coloring page to sweeten your day!
Cupcakes come in an endless number of delicious varieties, and there is always a new flavor to taste! Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry–my mouth is watering as I write this! One of my all-time favorite flavors is strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. So yummy, especially in the summertime! I’m not sure about a cherry cupcake, though–that doesn’t sound as appealing, ha! In the fall, I start craving that amazing spice cake flavor, so it is carrot or pumpkin cupcake time!
Like real-life cupcakes, these coloring pages of cupcakes also come in many different “flavors!” I designed a variety of coloring pages so that you can create coloring pages with different colors and decorations.
These pages feature a variety of cupcake designs, including some with fun sprinkles and toppings. The strawberry cupcake coloring pages are my absolute favorite, by the way! They are so adorable!
Cupcake coloring pages: a “recipe” for a delightful time with your family!
Cupcakes have always been one of my FAVORITE things to bake.. I love decorating these little cakes with pretty frosting, colorful sprinkles, flowers, and fruits. If you’re looking for a family baking project, I highly recommend mixing a yummy batch of cupcakes, stirring up some creamy icing and spending the afternoon frosting yummy cupcakes with your children! It’s so satisfying to see each finished cupcake treat sitting on the baking rack splendidly frosted.
Well, the same goes for cupcake coloring pages! These dessert coloring pages for kids and adults are a wonderful way to spend family time together. They are sooo much fun to decorate, and it is exciting to fill in these coloring pages of cupcakes with your favorite “flavors!”
Coloring pages are always a blast, but with an audiobook, they’re even better!
I have a confession: we are bonkers about audiobooks in our family. We used to live in a giant city and spent A LOT of time in the car. It took forever to drive anywhere! We got into the habit of listening to the Bible and to audiobooks while we drove..and we fell IN LOVE with audiobooks. Now, great books are woven constantly into the fabric of our lives.
Here’s a great “recipe” for adding another layer of fun to your time with your kiddos! Find an age-appropriate (and highly-entertaining) audiobook and listen while you spend time working on these cupcake coloring pages with your children!
It is SUCH a bonding experience to read (or listen to, in this case) books with your kids. It is always so fun to talk about the story afterwards! If you need any ideas, I have TONS that I love, and I will link to a few in the supply list below. I am somewhat of a connoisseur, ha!
To make your cupcake coloring sheet pop, add some confetti!
As I was thinking of ideas to make this project extra-special, a thought popped into my imagination: it would be so fun to glue paper confetti to the completed cupcake coloring pages to represent sprinkles!
