Pinwheel-Topped Cupcakes

Pinwheel-Topped Cupcakes by SweeterThanSweets

It was a fun treat for the moms and their kids. I’m going to share a “tutorial” with you on how to make these, though I feel strange calling it a tutorial… It’s more of a way to add some fun to what would otherwise be a plain treat for birthday parties, gifts , Memorial Day BBQ’s, or for your own little sweeties!

What you need to make Pinwheel-Topped Cupcakes:

colored sugar
pinwheels or other fun toppers
wire cutters

Think of all the fun things you could top cupcakes with! I found these pinwheels at Hobby Lobby on sale for 60 cents each. They were just a bit too tall to be able to stand up on their own in the cupcakes, so the first thing I did was cut them with my Sweets’ wire cutters. (I think I get more use from them than he does.)

Then wash the part that’s going to be in the cupcake. I mostly did this since I knew some of the girls at my table might be reading this tutorial. (Just kidding.)

Pour some of the sugar onto a small plate. I ended up using maybe 1/8 of a cup (or 1 ounce) of sugar.

Frost your cupcake with your favorite frosting. My favorite is Wilton’s buttercream recipe… unfortunately, it is so yummy that I could (and do) eat this stuff by the spoonful. I use clear vanilla, found in the cake section of craft stores, so the frosting stays white.

It doesn’t have to be pretty, as you can see. Nobody’s really looking at the frosting (did you?). But this is one time when you want a “muffin top”: Make sure there’s enough frosting to overlap the edges a bit. =)

Then you’re going to roll the cupcake in the sugar. This will squish in the edges and make it look a bit cleaner, too.

Now pop in your pinwheel or other fun topper and if you’re serving these at your house, you’re all done!

If you need to transport them like I did, put each one in a cellophane bag and tie a ribbon around the stick in between the pinwheel top and the cupcake.
