Divine Nature

For my "Divine Nature" 10-hour Value Project, I got the idea to make cupcakes for each of the girl's birthdays (and bring them to the Mutual closest to their birthday). I plan the cupcakes based on the girls favorite color, flavors, candies, interests, etc. I spent about 2-4 hours on each birthday, depending on the amount of cupcakes I would have to make (when the Mutual when fall on a combined YM/YW activity date, I would make cupcakes for everyone instead of just the YW)

Here are some of the examples of cupcakes that I've done:

Harry Potter "Snitch" cupcakes

"Heath Bar cupcakes" with caramel frosting and chocolate ganache

Mini candy cupcakes on top of regular cupcakes

Other things involved in this project are:

  • Making a list of young womens' birthdays (and keeping track of what birthdays are next)

  • Making Gluten-free cupcakes (for gluten-free kids in the ward, if applicable)


  1. My 12 year old daughter and her friend came to me one day and asked if they could publish a website to teach people about being LDS and use it as a value project. The site is LOL 4 LDS – lessons of life for LDS

    They have done a wonderful job! I am trying to help get the word out. I was hoping that you would take a look at it and possibly add a link to your page. We would be happy to put a link on her page to your site if that is okay with you. Thank you in advance.


  2. Wow, that is awesome that you made cupcakes for all the girls. Way to go!
