Cupcake Toppers Add Fun, Whimsy, or Beauty
Many people may shy away from choosing cupcakes for parties and events, simply because they are afraid they will not be able to include very much creativity in their design. However, cupcakes are becoming more and more popular for all types of events, even weddings in lieu of a regular cake. The key to using the tiny handheld desserts, is to choose the right toppers.
With the wide variety of standard and nonstandard cupcake decorations available, you can be creative as you wish. When you are planning your next party, and then consider some of these ideas.
For Children's Parties
Of course, the old stand-by still can be a favorite. For children's parties, multicolored sprinkles atop white icing or confetti sugar bits on any icing can still be fun and fresh. You can also choose sugar sprinkles in colors to fit the occasion. If you are planning for a Christmas party, red and green sprinkles can be perfect.
Another idea that continues to be a favorite at children's parties is to include a tiny toy item atop the frosting that children can take home. You could include little plastic rings or small plastic figurines. The key is to only do this if the children are old enough to not choke on the decorations.
If you want to do something more creative when decorating cupcakes, then remember that the only limit is your imagination. There are hard sugar decorations in all different styles or themes. You can create sports themed cupcakes or princess themed ones. If you choose sugar decorations, you will be especially pleased since the whole item will be edible, except the wrapper of course.
If you are planning for something a little more elegant, then you could choose something simple, yet delightful. You could add chocolate shavings atop white frosting. Alternatively, you could add a slice of strawberry or a cherry atop chocolate frosting.
It is important to remember that your cupcakes can be fun, whimsical, or elegant. It all depends on how you decorate them. The little cakes do not have to be limited to casual events. They can be formal as well.
Do not be afraid of cupcakes because you think you cannot be very creative. In fact, there are so many ways to decorate and so many cupcake toppers that you will have no problem offering the best dessert. Your only problem may be trying to decide which decoration would be best for your party or event.
