candy leaf cupcake topper {diy}

November 12, 2013

Last week I had some guests over for a little pampering party and thought I’d share some cupcakes to munch on among all of the other goodies.  And, I had some left over orange candy melts from my Oreo Pumpkin Pops that I wanted to use up.  The resulting idea?  Some colorful fall leaves that are a fun and festive little addition to a cupcake…you just can’t go wrong when you can eat your topper!


I like the texture and rustic-sorta feel to these!  Furthermore, you can’t argue with how fast and easy these come together.


You’ll will need some wax paper, a flat surface, the leaf template from Jane’s Doodles, your candy melts, and a pastry or zip-lock bag.


Put your image on the flat surface (I used a baking sheet) and the wax paper on top of that.  Melt your candies according to the package directions (you won’t need to melt the whole bag).  Spoon the melted candies into a zip-lock bag.  Snip a tiny hole into the corner.


With a slow hand, trace the outside of the image with orange first.  Allow to cool briefly.  Line some of the inside with red.  Cool again.  Then gently, and lightly, fill in the rest of the spaces.  Allow to cool.


Gently put them on top of your cupcakes.

cupcake topper {diy}

April 12, 2013

A friend of mine recently had a little Roaring 20s Soiree that I helped fancy up for her.

Inspired by Great Gatsby, Art Deco, and peacocks, we have this lovely cupcake topper that was a part of the festivies:


Super easy…

Cut 3 different sized triangles out of 3 slightly different papers (I used two different tints of gold and a shimmery brown), glue together, and stick on a toothpick with hot-glue.  Festive, inexpensive, and glamourous.


Now go get your pearls, and enjoy,
