American Girl, a popular line of dolls, was first released in 1986. In celebration of its 35th birthday this year, the brand is having a virtual birthday party hosted by Magnolia Bakery.
The American Girl Birthday Bash, set for Saturday, May 8, will feature cupcake-filled fun for attendees. A virtual cupcake decorating event, led Magnolia Bakery chief baking officer Bobbie Lloyd and special guests (influencers Rachel Pitzel, Ava and Leah Clements and Zooey Miyoshi), will take place on Zoom and will show how to make the bakery’s famous buttercream and decorate cupcakes.
The virtual event costs $115 and includes the online cupcake decorating class and a limited-edition American Girl x Magnolia Bakery Cupcake Kit. Each kit comes with six full-size and twelve mini vanilla cupcakes, edible star decorations, colorful sprinkles, powdered sugar and food gel dye to make your own buttercream, icing bags and decorating tips. It also comes with an American Girl cupcake toy.
During the tutorial, there will also be a game of trivia to test the family’s knowledge of all things American Girl and fun American Girl videos to watch, including a new “Happy Birthday American Girl” music video.
