When someone asks you to make cupcake toppers for a summer-themed birthday party, you’re always safe with popsicles. Especially if they’re this cute.
I saw this photo of these toppers, but there was no “how-to” other than use Mike and Ike’s and toothpicks. It was pretty simple to fill in the blanks, the hardest part was coming up with a way to glue them together.
Here’s a short video I uploaded to Instagram by request after I’d posted a photo of the toppers:
For the sugar glue: 1/2c sugar 1/4c water, simmer until it gets thick, about 10 minutes. Video by @crinklelove
Since it has been so hot, I finished the cupcakes at the party so the frosting wouldn’t melt off during the one hour drive to the party. That happened last year. I’m not even going to get into that story.
Here is a quick shot I took at the party once they were finished.
Hopefully I’ll get the opportunity to make these again, they were so quick and fun with a pretty cute payoff in the end.
