We have 2 very good bakeries in the area where we get cupcakes once in a while. The cake and icing flavors are always a great combination and who doesn’t love a cupcake. Sometimes I like to dress them up a little especially when we get them for company or special occasions. These Bow Tie Cupcake Toppers are just the thing when we needed recently for a big family dinner.
The cupcakes were simple so they could please a crowd. Making the cupcake toppers took them to a new level, giving them a little touch of sophistication. The best part was watching the kids then hold them up as bow ties as they talked in terrible British accents.
Create these for yourself either by cutting them out by hand or using your Silhouette cutting machine. Here is the SVG file for the Bow Tie Cupcake Toppers.Here is the printable if you are cutting them out yourself.
- Glue Dots, mini size is ideal
- scissors or Silhouette
On your cardstock print the bow tie cut outs or run the file through your Silhouette on cardstock.
Add 1 mini glue dot to the center of your bow tie shape and fold over one end and stick to glue dot. Do NOT crease the bow tie.
Repeat with next side, add another glue dot and fold over to create bow tie shape.
Using the small rectangle strip fold that around so the ends meet in the back and secure with 1-2 more glue dots.
Using 1 more glue dot attach the toothpick to the back of the bow tie and you’re ready to decorate your cupcakes.
Don’t let the cupcakes be the end of your dress up. These can be placed in a cheese tray, fruit tray or even a bowl of olives. The bow ties can also be made to be any color to match your event, dinner or holiday.
