Cupcake Toppers

If you ask me, cupcakes are one of the best universal desserts.  There are so many different varieties of cake and frosting the the combinations are endless.  Not to mention, the numerous ways to decorate them.

Personally, I like to make cupcake toppers.  They are super easy to make and can be made to fit any celebration theme.

Here's how I make them:

First, find a image or picture you want to use for your theme, size it and print it off of your computer.  I like to print my images on white card stock.

Cut your image out in the shape you desire (sometimes I use different shaped, large paper punches for this).

Then, I like to glue the image onto an additional piece of complimentary card stock.

Glue onto one of these

or something similar, like a bamboo skewer.

Let dry then, get your cupcakes dressed.

And while some don't make it perfectly (maybe we should call this a "turn over") through the night,  we still love 'em! ;)
