Free Easter Printable: Cupcake Toppers

Easter Cupcake Toppers
 
 
Easter is right around the corner...literally! I ran to Target Monday night for a few things and it hit me...Easter is THIS WEEKEND...followed by...HOLY CRAP!

You see I have these awesome crafty friends who often drop off little goodies from "their kids" to Asher for holidays. (Remember this adorable Owl from his friend Aubrey) Yeah! Anyway I needed something quick, cute and easy since I had like zero time! So I went with old faithful...mini cupcakes! Who doesn't love a mini cupcake right! One box of cake mix makes a ton and they are the perfect size for kids! (way less mess!)




I wanted to spice them up a bit and I just love all the cupcake toppers I've seen lately so I decided to join the party and design some of my own! Now you're probably thinking I banged these out with my fancy shmancy new Silhouette I got for Valentines day right...?!? Yeah no...confession #1: It's still in the box! I know, it's shameful really but I've just been so busy. So these little puppies were cut out via 1.5 circle inch punch! 
(This size is perfect for full size cupcakes too!)

Hopefully in these last few days before Easter you'll have a desire to bake some cupcakes and can use them too!

Baking Tip:  

So trust me I'm no baker! Honestly cupcakes and muffins are about it for my baking repertoire and it's taken me practice not to screw those up!  But OCD I am and therefore I've figured out a way to keep the mix from spilling in between the cups when pouring into the pan or cupcake liners! It requires an extra step but it's so worth it! It also give me more control over how much batter is poured into each cup for even baking/presentation.


Meet my Wilton candy making bottle! These are super cheap at Michael's and I just cut the spout for a wider pour. Now fill it up and squeeze the desired amount of batter into each cup! 
 

 Perfect!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have a fantastic Easter! -Jax

The bottle of batter is brilliant! (And that alliteration was entirely unintentional...)

We are busting out that Silhouette next week. Yes, ma'am, we are.

I love them, the toppers are super cute. I will have to stop by Michaels this week, I love the bottle idea. I have always wanted a cleaner way to fill cup cake liners:) Thanks Jax!
