When it comes to putting toppings on cupcakes, given their small size, attractive snacks are easily created; your guests, kids and family will appreciate the care and love that goes into baking. Candy is one of the easiest choices when selecting toppings for cupcakes. Colored sugars and sprinkles are always an attractive and delicious topping and it's something kids can help with as well. Once the cupcakes are iced, pouring the sugars and sprinkles in separate bowls allows for careful dipping, or not so careful, of the cupcakes. Another tasty topping can be larger candies such as gum drops or finely chopped up candy bars of various flavors.
