Daniel Tiger Cupcakes

What would a birthday party be without cute little cupcakes :)

I love cupcakes. They are so easy to make and then you can decorate them with cute little cupcake toppers. And don't you love the frosting on these? This summer I learned how to use icing tips- and it is SO EASY! I don't know why I was so scared of trying it out before- seriously... it looks nicer and is actually faster than trying to frost these bad boys with a butter knife. You've got to give it a try :)

But I digress. You came here to see paper crafts, not my baking :) So back to the toppers. Didn't they turn out adorable.

With MDS they are so easy to make. First you figure out what size you want them to be- I started with a circle that was slightly bigger than my scallop punch. Next I decorated them using my homemade Daniel Tiger DSP and the images I had found online. I wanted to add an individual touch to each of the characters- so I circled them with quotes geared towards a party (if you haven't given it a try yet, create a freeform line and attach a text box to it- the results are Grr-rific!). Then all I had to do was print them up and punch them out. And (depending on your size) you can usually get about 20 of these from a sheet.

I hope you give some customized cupcake toppers a try at your next party!

Pin It!

What sized scalloped punch did you use for these?

I used the 'original' scalloped punch- which should be the 1 3/4". I find that one is the perfect size for cupcake toppers and use it a ton!
