Our little muchacha is turning 2 this weekend! In celebration we are having a Cinco de Mayo themed party of course! Needless to say this week is going to be bananas (nevermind the fact that I thought it would be an excellent idea to begin painting this kitchen this week as well)! One of the weekend tasks was to make cupcake toppers. A friend of mine sent me an idea for chili peppers and I was sold. They are so easy and turned out adorable...I have to make yellow and orange peppers later this week too. So here is how you make them:
YOU WILL NEED:
Tootsie Roll midgees, pretzel rods, candy melts in green and red (or more colors if you want other peppers), wax paper, sprinkles (Optional)
Ta da! You can remove them from the wax paper once they are dry. These will go on cookies and cupcakes for the party in various colors. The green ones are pretty snazzy with the sprinkles but I didn't get a picture of them. I will share when they are on the cupcakes!
I also made marshmallow Mexican flags that I will share later!
Whew only 900 other things to nail down this week!!
