Designer Duct Tape for your Cupcake Display

cake decorating
I recently started incorporating designer duct tape into my kid’s birthday party decor.   For two of my kid’s birthday parties this year, I used printed duct tape to decorate the cupcake board and display.    This is such a simple way to embellish your cake display and it really helps to pull the party theme together.

For my daughter’s Hunger Games party, I covered a 9″ x 13″ cake board with flames duct tape to incorporate the Girl on Fire theme.   The finished cupcakes looked great displayed on the cake board.

I also used duct to for my son’s Monster Jam party.   For his party, I created a unique Monster Jam cupcake display and embellished it with checkered flag duct tape.

Other designer duct tape patterns include Camouflage, Hot Pink, Zebra, Leopard, Tie Dye, Skulls, Paint Splatter, Hawaiian Surf, Red Dragons, Black and Pink Argyle and Hello Kitty.

In addition to using duct tape to decorate your cake and cupcake displays, you can also use it for other party decor items.  Please visit the Ducktivities website for lots more party decorating inspiratoin.

New York Yankees Cupcakes

I made these New York Yankees cupcakes for my daughter to bring to school for her class birthday party. They were so easy to assemble and they looked great!

The paper cupcake toppers were made using images I found on the Internet.   I sized the images so they were small enough to  punch out with a 1 3/8″ paper punch.     Here are step-by-step instructions to create these Yankees paper cupcake toppers:

  • Print the images onto 8 1/2″ x 11″ photo paper.
  • Punch the images out using a 1 3/8″ circle paper punch.
  • Create circles out of red cardstock paper using a 1 1/2″circle punch ~ two red circles for each cupcake topper. *You can use a larger punch if you want a wider border around your image.
  • Glue each Yankee image to one red cardstock circle.
  • Take the other red circle and tape a toothpick to it and then glue the Yankees image on top.
  • Insert the paper cupcake toppers into your frosted cupcakes.
  • Place the finished cupcakes into MLB cupcake wrappers which can be purchased on Ebay.

If you want to save a bit of time, you can purchase New York Yankees bottle cap images to use for your paper cupcake toppers.  Please visit  my Cupcake Topper page for more information and instructions on how to make these cute cupcake decorations.
