Even though we weren't having many people over, not even other kids, I still wanted to do something fun for their party. A while back, when I was looking up Super Mario Brothers ideas online, I saw some cupcake toppers that were just too cute.
This is the picture I saw:
When I found the cupcake toppers online at $8.99 for a set of 12, I knew my creative self would have to emerge! That was just too pricey for this
I decided to print out their favorite characters from Mario Kart Wii and Super Mario Galaxy which included some girly characters and some macho characters! We had Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Princess Peach, Daisy, and Rosalina...oh, and a Luma. It took what seemed like forever to cut out 24 characters and then another 24 circles out of construction paper for the back. I then placed them on colorful toothpicks, and after each cupcake was iced and sprinkled, the toppers were ready to go!
They turned out great. The kids loved them. I think the grown-ups did, too.
It was a fun day with our family. I really enjoyed the time we spent together eating BBQ and cupcakes! The kids enjoyed opening some presents and playing with everyone.
Thank you, Steve, Mary, Stevie, Rebecca, Sonja, Mom, and Dad for the perfect day.
