monogram cupcake toppers


Remember last week's post about the daisy cupcake toppers? Well, while we were at it, we also made monogram cupcake toppers using a little white chocolate and sprinkles. You can create any letter in any font, or any other shape. Here's how.

To use a specific font, print out your letter exactly the size you want it. Cover your printed page with a piece of wax paper.

Melt your melting chocolate according to package directions. Spoon melted chocolate into an icing bag or plastic bag with the tip cut off. Pipe the chocolate onto the wax paper following your printed guide (or freehand it if you're artistic, or just brave).


Immediately sprinkle with nonpareils or other sprinkles while the chocolate is still wet. Allow to dry for several minutes, then carefully pull shapes or letters off the wax paper and put on top of cupcakes.


Think how cute these would be with the birthday girl or boy's initial on them. Or any shape that goes along with your party theme. Custom toppers for any occasion!

I know you wrote this about a million years ago, but I just wanted to let you know that I just started a cupcake business (SUPER small - just me) and my fist customer wants a monogram on the top of her cupcakes. You are my lifesaver!

Lindsay said...

I just posted my own attempts at these monogram cupcake toppers (with a link here, of course).

Thanks again for the idea!
