The age of the cupcake is well and truly upon us and there is so much that we can do to take advantage of this. A way of completing a party, wowing friends and family or even for a wedding, cupcakes are tasty, versatile and easy to decorate. We have moved in from the days where we could only use icing as a form of decoration and cupcake toppers come in all shapes, sizes and ingredients. So if you’re thinking of throwing a party, here are a few great ideas to get you started.

One of the most common places people are looking for inspiration for cake toppers is at children’s birthday parties. Birthday parties are a great place to start with party decorations because there is so much you can do with it. Whether you’re going for their favourite TV show, a woodland theme or simply using one colour, there’s so much you can do with theme party supplies and getting cupcake toppers to match is a relatively easy task.

There are a lot of options on the internet, especially in the kids party section because there are so many options. A good place to start is always to look for cake toppers from the latest and most popular TV and films. Minions are a great example of something that you can easily find great toppers for as they’re incredibly popular. Whether you go for a simple flat sugar paper picture of something that stands upright out of the cupcake, there are plenty of options.

While buying things online is as easy as a couple of clicks, there are loads of things you can do from the comfort of your own home using a few simple staples. Icing is a really wonderful and versatile way to create the exact look you’re going for but sweets, chocolate, nuts and dried fruit are also an excellent way to get inventive with your decorating.

Marshmallows make excellent fluff, chocolate buttons for eyes, almond slices for feathers and sweets that come in all kinds of shapes are a really simple way to top your cupcakes in a gorgeous and edible topper. Some of the most simple but inventive things you can do for cupcake toppers include making owls out of almond slices, chocolate buttons and covered chocolate. Make fish out of colourful icing and covered chocolate for scales and even rainbow cupcakes using a selection of different covered buttercreams.

There’s a lot that you can do to transform your cupcakes into party decorations and in doing so, really making the entire feel of the party come together. Cakes, cupcakes and sweet delights are being used more and more often as a form of decoration that really set your party out from the others. Whether it’s a birthday party, wedding or a Christmas celebration, there’s so much you can do with a bit of ingenuity and some simple sweet treats.
