Cupcake Toppers in ... 1 - 2 - 3
However, I finally gave in. Last August, my niece and nephew had a superhero birthday party. They wanted cupcakes with "the little toothpick things" as the 3/4 year old described them. I was walking down the kids craft aisle of the craft store, when I saw these foam stickers, and...BAM I knew what I was going to do. I grabbed a bag of the stars, a paint pen, and headed to the checkout.
When I got home, I couldn't wait to get started. I used the white paint pen, and a fine black sharpie to write on the foam stars. I wrote superhero words like "bam," "pow," and "zap." I also added a few "happy birthday's" and many letter "m's" for their names. The stars already came with that fantastic border, so no other decoration necessary. When I was done, I had a pile of stickers that looked like this:
To construct the topper all I had to do was pull the back off the foam stickers, and place a toothpick between two stickers (sticky sides together).
Stick in a cupcake, and you are ready to go! How easy was that? I used the "Grasshopper" (mint chocolate) cupcakes from this post, and chocolate cupcakes with strawberry icing.
