  • Popsicle sticks, toothpicks, lollipop sticks or straws
  • Cupcakes and frosting
  • Cake topper templates
  • Tape (regular and double-sided)
  • Curling ribbon (shiny metallic)
  • Aluminum foil
  • Scissors
  • 2" Scallop circle punch (optional)
  • Cardstock (optional)


Print and cut out the Cake topper templates. We would recommend using cardstock. There are 15 toppers per page, and three different designs.

Punch or cut out the aluminum foil backing. To do this, use either a 2" scallop punch or the circle template that we provided.

Using double-sided tape, tape the cupcake toppers to the foil backing.

Curl some curling ribbon and tape it to the top of the cupcake topper. Then tape the topper to the lollipop stick (or whatever you decided to use). Now they are ready to insert into the cupcakes.
