tools3I made these tool theme cupcakes for my husband’s birthday.  He is the Mr. Fix It in the household, so these cupcakes were perfect.   However, you can also serve these tool cupcakes at a kid’s Handy Manny, Bob the Builder or Construction Theme celebration.

The cupcakes and frosting were from Duncan Hines and the cupcakes were baked in silver foil baking liners.  The frosting was tinted moss green using Wilton Icing Paste and piped onto the cupcakes using a decorating tip.

The chocolate tools and toolbox were made using a Toolbox Candy Mold from Cybrtrayd.   This candy mold features a hammer, screwdriver, pliers, wrenches and vice grips.   There was also a large toolbox.

For the chocolate, I used Wilton Light Cocoa Candy Melts.  If you have never melted chocolate before, please visit my Easy Chocolate Making page for step-by-step instructions and photos.

After the cupcakes were frosted and chocolates were finished, I topped each cupcake with a tool.   In the center of the cupcake tray, I placed the tool box on four Recess Peanut Butter Cups and filled it with colorful M & M candies.

My husband loved his tool cupcakes and I am sure your little Mr. Fix It will love it for their birthday, too!
