How to Fake a Birthday Party (Spoiler Alert: Sparkler Cupcakes)

cupcake sparks 2

What starts as a real birthday party can sometimes turn into a fake birthday party. It’s ok. It happens. It’ll make lovely photos for a this-is-my-fake-beautiful-life blog post.

I learned a few significant lessons on this day, one of them in reverse:

  1. Fake parties are just as enjoyable as real parties.
  2. Any fake party can be turned into a real party immediately with the addition of sparklers.

Sparklers are so amazing. They fix everything. They are the best.

Tip on sparkler cupcake cakes: Get a few volunteers to help light the sparklers. They take a while to catch, and you don’t want half of them to burn out while you’re lighting the rest.

Another tip on sparkler cupcake cakes: Don’t use too many sparklers. Or you might start your cake on fire.
