So is anyone sick of cupcakes yet?? I mean if you ask those food experts out there the cupcake trend should be way over by now, right? Personally I still think anything cupcake related is still going pretty strong. And really, who can resist a little cake?
And then topped with a glittered party hat? Even better!
The party hats are made from Bugles (a lot of bloggers have been already been super creative with Bugles as hats like here, and here, here, here, and here!). I also use them for my little candy people (for gnomes, Sorting Hat from Harry Potter, Santa hats). You could also use candy corn for the hats (they worked better when I did these witches last year).
For these party hats, dip the Bugle in melted candy wafers, then immediately dip into a bowl of rainbow sugar sprinkles and let the candy harden.
After dry, lay hat on its side and pipe some streamers from the top with melted white chocolate or candy wafers/melts. When that is dry, "pipe"a circle of melted white chocolate and immediately add the hat to the center of the circle.
Then add to your cupcakes. Since these were for New Years Eve, I added the year to some of the hats as well (in melted white chocolate too).
And you get some really fun and festive cupcakes! Although I used these for New Years, I think you could do these for any celebration. For a birthday party you could even add the kid (or adults!) name to the hat. Wouldn't that be super cute?
Hope you like them and have a very fun and festive week!
I'm really enjoying all the Valentine's Day treats being shared around too. I may have one or 2 coming up as well!
