Take your cupcakes from ordinary to extraordinary with Cupcake Cuties!
I love cupcakes! Who doesn't, right? They're easy to make, and easy to eat. But sometimes they can be, well, boring. Sure, they taste great, but I have never been able to make my cupcakes really awesome looking. Until now, that is.
I recently heard about Cupcake Cuties. These are awesome cupcake decorating kits! You can turn a plain cupcake into something like this...
Those are just three of my favorites. There are over 30 kits to choose from! Cupcake Cuties has a wide range of whimsical and upscale designs for many occasions including birthdays, weddings, and holidays.
The kits are easy to use, and come with easy to follow instructions and a picture. You start with a frosted cupcake, wrap with a Cupcake Cutie sleeve, and garnish with Cupcake Cutie toppings. It's as easy as 1-2-3. Everything you need to decorate your cupcakes is included. The sleeves, which are made in the USA, are made with food safe inks.
I received the Christmas Tree kit to review. When I took the adorable package out of the box, I didn't think there was any way I was going to be able to make cupcakes that looked that pretty.
The box itself was so cute, Rylie saw it and wanted to help! After a little mishap with a litte bit of the cupcake mix ending up on the floor (what do you expect when you have a toddler "helping" you?) we managed to get the rest of the mix and all of the ingredients in the bowl and she helped me stir it up.
We baked the cupcakes according to the package directions, and left them to cool. Once they were cooled, it was time for the fun to begin.
The directions on the box said to start with a frosted cupcake, but I have been known not to follow directions from time to time. I thought it would be easier to wrap the sleeve around the cupcake without the frosting on it, so I did that first. I think I made a good call because when one sleeve ended up coming off, it was a lot harder to put it on with the frosting on it. The sleeves have an adhesive strip that keep the ends together.
Once the sleeves were wrapped around the cupcakes, I scooped the frosting into the pastry bag that was included with the kit and frosted the cupcakes. Then I took the candy cane confetti and sprinkled it over the frosted cupcakes. Look how cute they turned out!
They were so pretty, I didn't even want to eat them! Of course that didn't last too long, though, because who can have cupcakes just sitting around and not eat them? Certainly not anyone in this family. The candy canes were peppermint flavored, so it added just a little taste of peppermint to the chocolate cupcakes. YUM!
Cupcake Cuties range in price from $19.99 to $23.99. This is just a fraction of what you would pay for "designer cupcakes". Each Cupcake Cutie Kit comes with 24 self adhesive sleeves, and all the necessary toppings to create the design that is pictured.
Cupcake Cuties also offers a Cupcake Cutie of the month club membership. When you join the Cutie of the Month Club, you will receive a different Cupcake Cutie package each month preparing you for the upcoming holidays. Each kit will be shipped the on the 10th of the month, one month prior to the designated holiday. So you'll have your Santa cupcake delivered in November and your New Years cupcake in December! The price for this membership is $21.99 per month.
