Happy Birthday Plate Tradition

Tomorrow is Mini Me's tenth birthday.  I can't believe it.

My oldest is planning to leave the house soon to go off to school and my youngest is a whole decade old.  I don't even want to think about how old that makes me.

As we are prepping for the "big day", I wanted to share one of our fun, and easy, birthday traditions.

After all the "Bake at 350" plate and cup projects that I've shared with you, you knew I'd need to do one for my kiddo's birthday right?

For this project I bought a boring round circle plate from Dollar Tree and used the Sharpie Oil-Based Paint Marker.  I wanted to see if the results were better than using the regular sharpie markers.

Every year Mini Me asks for a big cupcake cake for his birthday, so drawing a cupcake on his birthday plate was a no brainer for me.  But you can draw anything you want...candles, cake, balloons, streamers, the sky's the limit.

When you are done drawing, bake your plate at 350 degrees for 30 minutes to set the paint.

I have to admit, I like the Paint Markers better than regular sharpies.  The colors baked on so much brighter.  But that's just me.  Have you tried both ways?  Which way do you like better?
