Kit Dia del Niño: a jugar!
by lesmuffins

This cupcake ensemble is happy and playful. It’s part of a photo set celebrating Agosto es el Mes de los Niños.” Roughly translated, August is the month of the children. In Argentina, the second Sunday of August is the official day of Children’s Day.

In keeping with the spirit of the holiday, Les Muffins created a cupcake-decorating kit especially for children. Ready to eat mini “muffins” (cupcakes), squeezable tubes of brightly colored frosting, cupcake decorations, cupcake toppers are included with an apron and headscarf (bandana) for the head baker. The photos are quite striking and beautifully styled.

Les Muffins baked cupcakes, muffins and cookies in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Exotic sabores like hibiscus, passion fruit, coconut, and dulce de leche are part of their cupcake menu. Cupcakes have made quite an impact in Argentina. Buenos Aires is a cosmopolitan city with a culture deeply rooted in European influences. It’s surprising to see an “American” trend like cupcakes develop an active cupcake/baking community like All You Need is Cupcakes!, Dots Cupcakes!, lulú cupcakes, Dulce Alicia Cupcakes, Rouci’s Cupcakes and Slatkos Cupcakes! in that part of the world.

Another reason to admire this cupcake kit is Hello Kitty. She certainly caught our eye atop a couple of the brightly colored cupcake toppers. Hello Kitty is another example of a contemporary icon with universal appeal. Cupcakes and Hello Kitty rule!
