Fairy Cupcakes are not to be confused with fairycakes. These are cupcakes decorated with a fairy theme that will fuel the imagination of the kids eating them. Take a look at what ideas are out there already:
The easiest cupcake design for a fairy party is to make the cupcakes into toadstools, as Speckled Freckle has done on her Fairy Party Ideas blog post.
The iconology of fairies is so well known, that you can make fairy cupcakes without adding an actual fairy at all, like Cupcake Sweeties in New Zealand have done.
In adition to the toadstool, Cupcake Woman has added a fairy relaxing against one on her cupcake.
Here is an awesome idea for making cupcakes into actual fairy wands, which I found on Sweets By Dee.
Here Sugarcrushmiami has made a beautifully colourful collection of cakes which feature fairies, wands, toadstools, butterflies, and tulips.
Tinkerbell must be the most famous of the fairies, and here are some Tinkerbell decorations you can try yourself, these are by Karen Tack who has also included instructions for how to make these cupcakes.
Patacake Parties has made this cute little collection that would take a little bit of extra time and effort to make, but it would be worth it.
I love it when someone thinks out of the box when decorating for a certain theme, how cute is this “crashed fairy” cupcake!? Made by Socake on Flickr
