Umbrella Cupcakes for Shower or Party

Pin It Now!
When you serve cupcakes in your party, especially kids party, do you notice a lot of times your guests couldn't finish the whole cupcake? I've been thinking if there is a way to decorate half a cupcake, and this is what I came up with.... cupcake umbrella!
















Here is how to turn 1 cupcake into 2 umbrellas:
- Bake cupcakes in cupcake liners in muffin tin.
- Cut each cupcakes in half from top to bottom (DO NOT REMOVE THE LINERS from the cupcakes! Otherwise the straws may poke through the cakes)
- Apply frosting
- Insert straws



These cupcakes would be fun to served at any kids party, baby shower, bridal shower!
Don't forget to check out the apple umbrella and cheese umbrella on this blog.

  5. She means cut them in half using a vertical cut (from top to bottom, in the middle of the cupcake). The picture is a top-down view of what would traditionally be a round cupcake top.

  10. Your child will have to be responsible for ferrying her umbrella to and from school and remembering to bring it home.
