You know how much I love cute cakes [4]. I’m not a fancy cake maker. I’ve never taken a class, nor do I know how to use a pastry bag — at least not well. But, I love to make festive cakes. Here’s a super easy one, perfect for Mother’s Day

1. Bake your favorite cupcakes, cool, and then frost. Our family really likes this recipe.


2. Print out letters to spell out “We ♥ MOM.”

3. Cut out letters and tape to toothpicks. Make sure that you tape the letters right side up, otherwise you might spell “Me ♥ WOW.” (Ask me how I know.)

4. Place cake toppers in your cupcakes and arrange cakes to display your message.

This is such an easy cake-topper craft and one that your children could easily participate in. Since cupcakes are such an easy-serve dessert, consider adapting it for other holidays, birthdays, and special occasions.
