Not every one has time to make an elaborate, highly decorated cake, but everyone can make a homemade cake that’s just as special. What is for everyone–is making the event you plan special and hopefully as stress-free as possible while you’re planning and preparing it.

To help you along, I’m sharing some of my best tips for hosting a no-fail birthday party.

  1. Find your comfort zone and know your limitations. Don’t overshoot for something too elaborate, know your resources, ie. time, budget, details.
  2. Know your audience. Make sure your planning and entertaining is catered towards making them at ease.
  3. Share, delegate and ask for help where you can. There’s no shame in this and it will really let you focus where your skill set is best served.
  4. Do as much as you can ahead of time, ie. set the table, create your music playlist, prepare foods that can be made ahead of times.
  5. Most of all, take a breath. Have fun, or else—what’s the point?

Keeping those few pointers in mind, you’ll be able to make any party a success no matter how you skin the theme. Because from there it’s just a matter of connecting the dots from color scheme, to party favors, types of food and of course-the cupcake or cake construction and styling.

For today, I’m keeping it simple with a Confetti Donut Cupcake. To start I used Betty Crocker’s confetti cupcake mix. Then I frosted them with Betty Crocker’s Thick and Creamy frosting and between the frosting is a mini donut made with the cupcake mix and dipped in some melted frosting.

Don’t they look fun and festive? The best part – there’s nothing complicated in the construction of these. It’s a no-fail recipe.

    I love these! They are super colourful and fun, you certainly wouldn’t guess they are from a packet mix. Betty Crocker is definitely one of the best pack mixes out there, their Chocolate Chip Cookies are divine!

    Adorable cupcakes! I want these at my birthday party… I love using Betty Crocker mixes when I don’t choose homemade because they always taste the best.
