The 7 Coolest Cupcake Toppers You Can Buy on Etsy

One the things that can be tricky about kids birthday party is serving the cakes or cupcakes. How do you decorate them if you are not crafty or an expert cake decorator? I find that sometimes the easiest thing to do is turn to the wonderful decorations known as cupcake toppers. A well-crafted, clever cupcake topper can instantly transform a blah cupcake into a really festive treat. A pink cupcake instantly becomes a ballerina, or a chocolate cupcake can instantly become a pirate ship. There are so many possibilities. I recently came across some cool cupcake toppers on Etsy and thought I would share them with you. I think these are particularly interesting because they are three-dimensional, really festive and make the cupcakes look so cool. I might have to order some for my birthday in September!
