It seems like cupcakes are everywhere, from weddings to birthday parties. Cupcakes have always been a party favorite and here are some new twists on an old classic.

1. Paintbrush and Palette Cupcakes

Frost the cupcakes in different colors: red, blue, green, yellow, orange, pink and any other shades you might want. Arrange the cupcakes on a paint palette with a paintbrush or two as an accessory.

2. Pool Table Cupcakes

Frost the cupcakes like pool balls and place within a cue holder made out of chocolate bars.

3. Ice Cream Cupcakes 

Two delicious treats in one! This one’s simple. Place frosted cupcakes in an ice cream cone. As an added bonus, put a small scoop of ice cream in the bottom. Just make sure your cupcakes are small enough to fit inside the cone.

4. Cupcake Heels

These are a fun way to celebrate princess birthday parties, a girls’ night out, or a bachelorette party. To create cupcake heels:

Cookie sticks

Sprinkles and candies

b)      Cut graham crackers in the shape of a men’s tie and dip in chocolate

c)      Slice a section in the cupcake and insert the graham cracker as the arch
