Question: Would you give the cupcake before singing?

I recently had a party for my DD. it was at my daughters dance school . There was one child whos son came but didnt want to participate in the kids activity. the mom wasnt there, he was with the grandma. so this child ( my close friends son) wants to eat cupcake before we sing HB. ( party is from 2-3:30 to dance, play and have a snack)
I OFFERED the child pretzels instead , and prob said something like after we sing you can have a cupcake but if hungry there are pretzels . ( this was at a place that didn't have other foods ) I brought juice and snacks .
My friend thought that wasn't nice or caring of me? I just thought it was etiquette that you wait till after you sing. I thought that was the NORM. I didn't think it was a big deal. I def dont want people upset with me, but shouldnt there be limits set?the upsetting part was she took it personally . Ad didn't tell me how upset she was about it for a week.
But if there's a next time situation with a friend or acquaintance what should I do? Lets please keep this nice as I'm guessing this could have diff opinions.
