Thank you so much for your suggestions about wrapping cupcakes in tulle and securing with a hair scrunchie. I recently had a fairy party for my five year old daughter and was wondering what to do for the birthday cupcakes. I made vanilla cupcakes, iced them with a pale pink buttercream frosting and then topped them with a fairy decoration.
Because the theme was fairies and little girls do love pink and glitter, I made some hair scrunchies from a glittery silver fabric. I cut circles of pale pink tulle which I held in place with the scrunchie. They made a gorgeous display when I put them on my pink tiered stand.
I was really impressed with how good they looked. They became a real centrepiece and a talking point amongst the other moms. The fairy cupcakes were easy to make and easy to decorate and looked fantastic. The moms even asked if I take orders!!
I have two younger daughters and I'll definitely be doing this again.
