Cupcake Cuties; Cupcake Decorating Kits {review & giveaway} CLOSED

Is there anything sweeter than a cutely decorated cupcake? Not in my book! I am a cupcake lover-big time! Actually love cupcakes so much I have one tattooed on my foot!

I bake cupcakes at least 2 times a week for my kids..and well for myself too! I’m no professional baker but I do enjoy acting like one and decorating our cupcakes (to the best of my ability). At least once a week my girls put their mini aprons on and come to help mom bake goodies. I love the time we spend together baking and like to think one day my girls will make delicious cupcakes for their family.

Several weeks ago while looking for some ideas for Easter cupcakes I found Cupcake Cuties. The company creates adorable decorating kits to turn regular cupcakes into sweet confections. These designer cupcake decorating kits have everything you need to make theme cupcakes for any occasion.


Each Cupcake Cuties Kit comes complete with  24 easy-to-use, self-adhesive sleeves and all the toppings to complete the cupcake design. For review I received the Easter Basket Kit.

Cupcake Kit

My cupcake decorating kit included 24 Easter basket cupcake sleeves/wrappers, marbled egg confetti shaker, colored pipe cleaners (for handles) and instructions. The instructions were simple to follow.

Cupcakes Cuties are created in a few simple steps.

  1. Prepare cupcake mix.
  2. Bake cupcakes.
  3. Allow to cool- I put mine in the fridge to cool them faster.
  4. Ice the cupcakes.
  5. Peel off the backing of the cupcake sleeve then wrap snugly around the frosted cupcake.
  6. Top with your sprinkles, marshmallows or other garnishments from your kit.

My finished Cupcake

After your cupcakes are made it takes about 15-20 minutes to turn them from drab to fab! The cupcake sleeves stick well and decorating them is fun!

I decided to have a bit of fun while making ours and used food coloring to make orange, purple, blue and pink icing so we could add in some color. After-all Easter basket grass does come in many different colors!

I could not find my pastry bag  so I ended up using a butter knife to ice the cupcakes. I wanted to add a grass effect, because I think that would have been cute too, but could not find my bag. It’s OK because they turned out really cute.

Would you like to liven up your next batch of cupcakes? Check out Cupcake Cuties and find the perfect cupcake decorating kit! The kits are $16.95-$23.99  and include everything you need to create yummy and fun cupcakes!
