Balloons and Cupcakes... a perfect match!

 I was hunting down different types of cupcake toppers for an upcoming baby shower and I spotted this. It then inspired me to come up with these fun balloon cupcake toppers.

Aren't they adorable!?!

And the greatest thing is they are very easy to make. Really. No need to print, cut, or glue anything!

Here is how you do it...

You'll need:
  • a small helium tank (you can get it at Wal-Mart or similar store)
  • small balloons (or regular balloons if you want- I did small ones)
  • string or bakers twine
  • dum dum lollipops (optional) or toothpicks- I used toothpicks
  • baked and frosted cupcakes
After you have baked and frosted your cupcakes, fill up the balloons with helium.
Tie them onto a string and then anchor them onto the lollipop or on the top of a toothpick (just cut the toothpick if it is too long). Lollipops would look much cuter, like a little cherry on top, but I just didn't want to go out and buy them.

 Next, insert the lollipop or toothpick into the middle of the cupcake. 

and Viola!

My daughter and I have been playing with little floating balloons all day. They are our new favorite thing lately.

Oh, and don't forget to eat the cupcakes later!!


p.s. be careful with small children and balloons.
