These are so simple, it's scary. Whip up a batch of cupcakes. Frost them. Place a stencil over the top and sprinkle cake sparkles, or sugar sprinkles over the top. P.S. I purchased my stencils at Michael's. Tonya Staab Lifestyle Blogger. Content Creator. Author. Photographer. Memory Maker. Substitute Teacher.

The stencil does stick to the icing a little which is why you don't get the smooth icing look, however, if you have a very steady hand, I suggest hovering it over the top if you do want it to look smoother. Another way to do it is to cut a fondant circle to lay over the top of the cupcake and then use the colored food spray with the stencil. Reply Okcmomto3 October 22, 2010 - 8:15 am I have thought about doing these before. But one question I had was. Do you actually lay the stencil on the cupcake. Or just hold it over it? Reply Okcmomto3 October 22, 2010 - 8:58 am That is what I wondered! If it stuck to the frosting. Yours looks great though!
