Yummy cupcake ideas for a party

Sharing is caring!

We all know a party is not really a party without cakes and cupcakes, everyone loves a little cupcake as they are small enough to eat yourself and they are usually just so moist and fluffy and delicious. Oh my, my tummy is rubbling just thinking about these yummy party cupcakes that can be made for the next party.

Even if you have a themed party there is always ways to make the cupcake blend in to the theme by adding colored icing or some little sugar decorations or candies. Piping bags are a must if you want to really get into making these wonderful cupcakes. Themed cupcakes like cookie monster, penguins, watermelon are perfect for themed parties.
