Easy cupcake toppers!

Easy cupcake toppers! 

Sorry I haven’t invested a whole lot of time in writing lately… I’ve been making stuff, just not writing about it! 

Last week, I had to make a treat for John to take into school for a Sick Kids Hospital fundraiser. I needed something creative, but quick and easy. I have seen these on Pinterest a few times, so I thought I would give it a shot…

I started by covering a cookie sheet with parchment paper, and then carefully spread out a bunch of pretzel sticks.

Then, in a sandwich bag, I meted some green candy melts in a mug with some hot water.

Once the chocolate had melted, I shipped the corner off the bag…

And squeezed out the chocolate in a zig zag tree shaped design.

Then, I used a snow flake for the top (closest thing I could find to a star) and Christmas coloured sprinkles. Then, popped them into the fridge.

The best thing was, I made them a couple days ahead of time, and kept them in the fridge in a sealed container. In the morning of the event, I iced the cupcakes with white icing, then dipped the icing in a bowl of coconut to make it look like fluffy snow.


I took out my container of ready made trees…


And stuck each one into a cupcake. Easy. I didn’t take a picture of the whole tray because John took them into school and put them together there (btw that tells you how easy it was to do- I let John do it!) but, I loved the way they turned out. The only thing I might do next time is make more, and put two in each cupcake, so they are double sided.


Enjoy!
