The Pirate Fairy, we decided we'd throw a Pirate Fairy dessert party for 7 cousins visiting during their Spring Break. It was the perfect match to go with the treasure hunt my daughter had already planned for the weekend. One of my nephews looked up at me and said, "Aunt Carrie, I think you make lots and lots of cupcakes everyday. You're really good at baking." I smiled down at him and asked, "Isn't that why you come visit me?"
With so many treats coming out of the oven and needing to be decorated, I was glad to have a few extra helpers in the kitchen. I baked the cookies right before heading out the door to teach Saturday morning yoga. After yoga, I picked up an extra niece who wanted to make the cupcakes and cake pops with me. I relied on the girls to explain the plot of the movie. They told me how fairy Zarina steals the Blue Pixie Dust and joins the pirates at Skull Island. Then Tinkerbell and the other fairies must work together to return the Blue Pixie Dust, but in doing do, their talents get switched.
Blue Pixie Dust Cake Pops:
Mini cupcakes (fairy-sized):
The cupcakes are frosted with vanilla buttercream and topped with Gold Pixie Dust (sanding sugar) or topped Nutella and green fondant leaves, vines or grass. The cookies are an assortment of fairies, fairy wings, feathers (fast flying talent), cracked eggs (animal talent), beans (light talent), water droplets (water talent) and petals (garden talent).
