Balloon Cupcakes

Balloon Cupcakes are one of the easiest decorating ideas you can use for any birthday party. Follow these simple instructions to make a bunch of colorful balloon cupcakes.

Make a batch of cupcakes - making sure that there is at least one cupcake per birthday guest - and then get ready to decorate. Let your imagination soar!

You need a large, flat plate or board to put the balloon cup cakes on. I always cover my board in wrapping paper in a color that suits my theme. Pale blue wrapping paper will look great as the bunch of balloons really will look as if they are floating high.

What you need:

  • Batch of cupcakes
  • Large plate or cake board
  • Icing
  • Food coloring
  • Curling ribbon
  • Make up a quantity of glace frosting or buttercream frosting and then separate into several smalls bowls, according to the number of colors you intend using. Add a few drops of coloring to each bowl and blend in. I think the frosting colors need to be very bold for this birthday theme.
  • Ice the birthday cupcakes and arrange them on the board.
  • Use leftover icing to attach lengths of ribbon to the bottom of each cupcake.
  • Tie all the ribbons together and curl the ends as shown.
