baby rattle cupcakes

babyrattlecupcakes Here’s a unique twist on the traditional cupcake for your next baby shower (invites and decor). I love how simple these are to make and how easily you can adapt the design to any color scheme.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Cake mix and required ingredients
  • 24 cupcake tins
  • White or cream cheese frosting
  • Decorating icings, tubes
  • Candy sprinkles
  • 8 yards curling ribbon
  • 24 lollipop sticks
  • 24 small gumdrops

And here’s how you make them:

  1. Bake your cupcakes according to the box instructions and allow them to cool on baking racks for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Frost your cupcakes with a base of white icing, pipe on your desired designs and add sprinkles.
  3. For the rattle, insert a toothpick in the side of the cupcake. Tie the curling ribbon around the center of the lollipop stick and add a gumdrop to one end. Insert the other end of the stick into the cupcake.
