queen of hearts and tarts
Let the guests decorate a cupcake to eat right away and another to keep to take home with them. Place a cupcake on a cardboard circular round at each place setting, so as to mimic a top hat. Set up and down the centre of the table an array of sweets in miniature sugar bowls and teacups and have the icing made and ready to go in icing bags. Let the guests have fun and maybe a little competition for the best (and “most creative”) cupcake hat.
A novel way to serve cupcakes is do so as one would tea – place the cupcakes directly in the teacup at each guest’s place setting.

GOOD LIFE TIP
Debbie from Cook Studio created “tiered” cupcakes by using the three different sized cupcake liners and stacking the cupcakes one on top of the other with icing in between to stick them together.
Decorate cupcakes and tartlets with the printable party cupcake liners and the printable party circles – naturally with the coined phrase of “EAT ME”.
Toppers page printed out
Cupcake wrapper printed out
5cm scalloped paper punch
Print the cupcake toppers printables onto bright white cardboard. Cut out cupcake wrapper and the circles with a 5cm scalloped paper punch, available at craft stores. Tape the topper circle onto a flat-ended toothpick or other stick of your choice. After your cupcakes are baked and iced and berry tartlets are topped with whipped cream; sprinkle some fondant hearts on top to make them “well-suited” to the party. Dip a fork into the bottle of luster dust and gently distribute onto the tops. Add a cupcake topper and the cupcake wrapper to finish it off.
GOOD TIP The printable party toppers are not just for cupcakes, use to decorate other food items, punch holes for straw toppers, print on sticker paper and use to decorate glass bottles, as envelope seals or napkin rings.
