Cute Birthday Party Cupcakes

Throwing a little boy or girl birthday party and you want some OOhhhhhs and Aahhhhhhs? OR is it a rainy day and want some fun with the kiddos. Use our 6 cupcake recipe to make a few and have fun with them.

Cute Cupcake Ideas

The easiest is to make rainbow cupcakes. Just frost white and then pipe the roygbp patten on the top. Perfect for a rainbow birthday party idea.

  1. Ladybug cupcakes are the best with little princesses
  2. Owl cupcakes are just a hoot if you know what I mean
  3. Cupcakes in a jar are great for a baby shower or adult party too, like Wicked Good Cupcakes but cheaper
  4. Monkey cupcakes (could be seen as bear cupcakes) we have made
  5. Spider cupcakes from This Silly’s Girl’s Kitchen
  6. Sheep cupcakes you can see below for Easter

You can make all of these in the regular size or this is how long to bake mini cupcakes which could be even cuter.

Cute as a Cupcake

You can make our sundae cupcakes that are baked in waffle cone cups like ice cream cupcakes. An easy way to make light and fluffy dessert cups for kids birthdays. Use chocolate or red velvet mix to fill and top with ice cream. We have even more ideas from our blogger friends too though like:

  1. Cookie Monster cupcakes from The Cupcake Diaries
  2. Polar Bear cupcakes from A Few Shortcuts
  3. Beehive cupcakes from Sugar Spice and Glitter
  4. Turtle flavored cupcakes chocolate cupcakes with caramel and nuts, could add chocolate chips inside too
  5. Turkey cupcakes from Home is Where the Boat is
  6. Octopus cupcakes from The First Year

Graduation cupcakes we made for my daughter a few years ago. These were super fun and great for both boys and girls. Make for Kindergarten graduation or High School gradation desserts.

How do you make pretty cupcakes

The best is to use pastry bags with a tip, you can decorate and fill Green Cupcakes a bunch of ways with different tips. If you want a much cheaper way you can just use a pint size freezer bags. Add frosting inside and snip the corner off. Then squeeze out so it comes out pretty so you can decorate it for your occasion.

I mean you can do the same thing to make a cupcake wedding cake really. You know those were there are 24-48 next to each other on a pallet. Spread frosting on top of them all so it looks like a cake. Then decorate as you would like but when served you just pull them apart so no cutting is required!

Birthday Cupcake Ideas

These are all easy cupcakes that you could go all out on to decorate Pinterest worthy or a bit simpler. During the summer months you can get away with making fresh strawberry cupcakes or just some blueberries on top with some ready made frosting!
