Personalize Cupcakes for Dad Using Sugar Sheets

June 16th, 2011 by Yvonne Busdeker

When I found out about Sugar Sheets coming to the market I was very excited because I understood the idea behind it…..scrapbooking! I took this fun opportunity for the family to make some Father’s Day treats. The moment I laid the supplies out on the table for the boys to look through they had a plan to add their artwork to the cupcakes. Our goal was to keep the project simple and sweet and personalized.

I want to preface this post with the fact that I’m NOT a cake decorator, I’m a scrapbooker as are my children. We love art, we love it on everything we do and everywhere we can put it. I’ve very often taken the kids’ artwork over the years and applied it to greeting cards, wrapping paper, and scrapbook paper among other things.

Iced Cupcakes in Grass Baking Cups We began by baking a dozen cupcakes in the Shaped Grass Baking Cups. Once the cupcakes cooled they were all iced.

When I make a large quantity of cards I generally create a design then duplicate it for ease. That same thought was applied to these treats. I selected the Green Stripes Sugar Sheets for the large circle and cut out 12. My youngest, Charlie, then applied the striped circle to the top of each of the iced cupcakes.

Next, we cut out a series of starbursts using White Sugar Sheets and the Layered Circles Cutting Insert Set. The starbursts would be layered on top of the Green Striped sheets. Everyone helped with using the punches to cut out all of our shapes. Because the kids were versed with scrapbooking tools they knew exactly what to do. However it was simple enough that even if they weren’t scrapbookers they would have gotten it.

Decorating Cupcakes with Punches

We used pre-cut Alphabet Sugar Sheets to write dad and pappa on a few of the cupcakes. The kids loved using FoodWriters™ to draw on the remaining white starbursts. After each of the starbursts was decorated, we applied icing to the back of them and layered on top of the Green Striped Sugar Sheets.

When all of the cupcakes were completed, we placed 4 each into silver cupcake boxes for presentation. The boys were so proud of their cupcakes. While they were not high-end works of art, they were better because they were fun, simple, and from the hands and hearts of my boys to their dad and pappa aka/grandpa.
