We celebrated my boys’ birthdays a few weekends back. Tanner got several Buzz Lightyear toys and was very excited about them. Since is birthday was after the big family celebration he wanted cupcakes that were like Buzz Lightyear. Not owning any (or knowing that they were out there because I just saw some last week) I pulled out my Technique Tuesday Rocket Man set. I showed him the little alien guy and he loved it! We baked up some vanilla cupcakes and whipped up a batch of icing and created this little guys. I didn’t mix the blue food coloring in all the way so that it would have that galaxy feeling and then we sprinkled Wiltons’ White Sparkling Sugar sprinkles and blue sprinkles on to for added affect. I stamped the image in StazOn jet black ink and then colored it in with markers, then punch them out with my circle punch. Next I put Scor-Tape on the inside of two circle punches and sandwiched a toothpick in between them. Then we stuck them into the cupcake and brought them to school for snack on his birthday. I am so happy with how they turned out as was the birthday boy These little toothpick cupcake toppers are so fast and easy to make too. I have done them for several years now.
Here’s a little close up of the cupcakes.
