Are you feeling lucky? We sure are! Who doesn’t love cupcakes with sprinkles!?! Today we have a fun way to display your St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes. Today’s tutorial is very similar to our bunting cake topper, but it’s even easier. Since spring is in the air we went with a lemon cupcake, a light whipped frosting, and of course, rainbow sprinkles to top them off. Add some green and you’re all set to celebrate the olde Irish holiday. Here’s what you will need:
- 2 paper straws
- baker’s twine
- mini clothes pins (found at your local craft store)
- cupcake wrappers
- some heavy cardstock paper with “LUCKY” written or typed on it, then cut out
- festive stickers (optional)
First, you will need to cut your straws to the desired length. If you’re doing a cake, then you can keep them at their regular length. Tie the two ends of the baker’s twine onto the straws. How long the twine is will depend on your personal preference and how big your letters are.
Cut out the letters from “LUCKY” and using the mini clothes pins, attach the letters to your baker’s twine. When you lift the straws up, the letters may twist around. This is because the twine is twisted. After you have the straws inserted into the cupcakes, you will just need to adjust the clothes pins a bit until they hang down how you want them to. Make sure the paper is heavy so that the clothes pins don’t hang upside down.
Wrap the cupcakes in your cupcake wrappers. I just did green, but green and yellow, or even a rainbow of colors would be fun, depending on how many cupcakes you are making. Finally you position the straws into the cupcakes just how you want them, making adjustments as needed. And voila! You’re cupcakes are all ready!
