How to Make Candy Cupcake Topper


1. Print out whatever design you want to make a topper of. *   (I printed a sheet of three different bunny silhouettes.)

2. Put a piece of wax paper over the top of your printed designs.

2. Melt Candy Melts according to directions. I added mine to these bottles for easier design control.

3. Add details that you want to show on the topper. I made pink eyes and pink ears on the white bunnies.

4. Use another color to draw the outline and then fill in the design.

5. Allow the candy melts to cool and harden completely before peeling off the wax paper.

6. Once you peel them off the wax paper, flip them over to see the finished cupcake topper!

* Don’t forget that you’re working from the BACK side of the design! So if you’re doing letters, numbers or words, the design needs to be reversed before you print it out.


Have fun making these fun candy toppers!

Be sure to show off your finished product if you make them. I’d love to see them!   :)
