Teddy Bear Picnic

Let's go for a picnic! 

In Ruby Wishfingers: Toad-ally Magic!, the Wishfingers hold a teddy bears' picnic for Jellybean's 1st birthday. 

 Ruby, Mum and Granny had been busy all week making plans for Jellybean’s first birthday. They had decided on a teddy bears’ picnic, to be held in the garden tomorrow morning. There would be fairy bread, lemonade and sandwiches cut into little triangles.

Ruby’s Enchanted Garden Cupcakes

Earthworm cupcakes:
Fill the cupcake wrappers to half way, leaving enough room once baked to top with chocolate ‘soil’ (oreo/chocolate cookies bashed with a rolling pin in a plastic bag) and a halved sour worm, with cut ends pushed into the soil.

Lollipop flower cupcakes:
Ice cooked cupcakes with green icing, push a lollypop into the centre and place two spearmint leaves at the base.

Jellybean Rain cupcakes:
Ice baked cupcakes with green/blue icing, decorate with a few jellybeans and a little cocktail umbrella.
