Being room mom for my son's class give me the opportunity to come up with fun treats when they have a party and this was no exception. Today they are having a Cinco de Mayo celebration in school with nachos, salsa etc. so I took the opportunity to make fun "sombrero" cupcakes! They were really easy to make! Here are the steps to make the "sombrero" cupcake toppers.
Step 1: Start with a round cookie. (This was the roundest cookie I could find without having to bake sugar cookies but if you want a rounder cookie, the refrigerated cookie dough would be perfect for this)
Step 2: Pipe icing around the edge of the cookie and a small circle in the center
(it doesn't have to be perfect)
Step 3: Add sprinkles to a shallow dish and place the cookie, icing side down, into the sprinkles
When you remove your cookie, it should look like this:
Step 4: Add a drop of icing to the bottom of a gum drop and place it in the center of the cookie
How cute is that?! A little "sombrero" cookie topper!
Here is the tray of them
Step 5: Bake and frost your cupcakes and top them off with a delicious sombrero
all packed up an ready to be devoured by a bunch of hungry children!
but seriously…..no Cinco de Mayo party is complete without a little faux mustache! I found these at my local party store for $.25 and I couldn't pass them up.
