Cupcake Toppers, the easy way!

2 Sep


Today was my husband’s birthday…  I really think celebrating his birthday is far more fun than celebrating my own.  I just love how excited my kids get to do fun things for Daddy…  Today was pretty laid back… While Ben was working the boys and I made some of his favorite cupcakes; chocolate with homemade buttercream………..  We also decided to make some fun toppers.  Here’s the thing.  I wish I had one of those fancy cutty-outy machines, but I don’t.  I had to do this the old fashioned way… That is why this is easy!

1.  Trace something circular onto some white paper…  I used a ribbon spool (not sure if that is what it’s called, but sounds right)…  I traced enough circles to fill up the entire sheet of paper.

2.  Cut out the circles… I cut 2 papers at once…

3.  Have your children decorate the circles in any way they would like!  I encouraged mine to think of things that Daddy likes (baseball, soccer, the lake, etc..)

4.  Glue the circles onto colored card stock and cut out…

5.  Tape a craft stick or sucker stick to the back and stick it in a cupcake.  If you don’t want the stick to show on the back of the card just cut another piece of card stock and glue it on sort of sandwiching the stick…

6.   AHHHH… cute cupcake toppers!

      Heather… Boxed cake! Maybe devils food or something like that… My SIL is a pastry chef and she told me that even wedding cakes start with a boxed cake and then they add to it to make it more yummy… I used Wilton’s recipe for buttercream frosting… I just googled “Wilton’s Buttercream Frosting Recipe” … I colored it yellow just because! ENJOY

    I have to say that cupcakes are taking over when it comes to parties. My children had cupcakes at their party this year and all the kids loved them. I love the designs above, they are fab.
