Our little M just turned 2! And since he’s been obsessed with Batman since my sister gave him a Batman board book for his first birthday, the party theme was sort of a no brainer. Per usual I did a mix of store (and etsy) bought and handmade decorations for the little backyard birthday party we had for him (one of the perks of being born in June is being able to have your birthday party outside!). I know doing all this crafting makes some people just roll their eyes “why???” so I decided to document just one, easy, fun thing that ANYONE can do to help customize a party to your theme!
To make even the most simple cupcakes or cake on-theme for your party, all you have to do is create a little chocolate topper! First, find an image that fits with your party theme, for this it was, of course, the batman symbol. Print out the image numerous times, place your print-out on a cookie sheet, and cover with wax paper.
Melt your chocolate (I used chocolate chips because I needed brown but you could also use those colorful chocolate melts from a craft store). Transfer the chocolate into a piping bag, squeeze bottle, or heavy duty Ziploc with the tip snipped and trace and fill in each shape with the melted chocolate. Let harden in the fridge for an hour or better yet, overnight.
Decorate your cupcakes putting the flat side showing (the side you pipe won’t be as smooth) and voila!
