These are super easy to put together.

All you have to do is bake the cupcakes and create the buttercream.

Fill your piping bag with buttercream and a 1M or 2D piping tip, then pipe a swirl onto your cupcakes.

You should print your free toppers. (You may find them in the supply list above or by clicking on the image below, which will instantly download.)

It is preferable to print them on cardstock so that they are not as fragile as standard paper.

You may now cut them out with scissors or punch them out using a 2 circular punch. Simply cut the toppers into strips and then hold the hole punch upside down to see where you’re cutting.

After you’ve cut out the toppers, flip them over and stick a toothpick to the back.

All you have to do now is put them in your cupcakes!

TIP: If possible, add them just before serving so that the printouts don’t soak up any of the butter from the icing.

Voila! A super easy treat for Dad!

What do you print cupcake toppers on?

You should use cardstock paper, which is somewhat thicker than regular printer paper.

What is the best cardstock for cupcake toppers?

When making a cake topper, select the thickest and most sturdy card paper available. For all of my cake toppers, I always use Michael’s “Recollections” glitter card stock. The weight of a comparable brand named “Paper Studio” from Hobby Lobby is somewhat lighter.

What size print for cupcake topper?

What size is ideal for a cupcake topper? Toppings on standard-sized cupcakes should be between 2.5 and 2.75 inches wide, while smaller ones should be between 1.5 and 2 inches wide.

Secure the scalloped layer to the colorful circular using double sided tape. Each topper should have a sticker in the middle.

Is cupcake paper the same as parchment paper?

Cupcake liners are, in fact, constructed of parchment paper. However, parchment paper isn’t your only choice. Aluminum foil may also be used for this purpose. However, unlike parchment paper, aluminum foil lacks nonstick qualities, making parchment paper a superior choice.
