Circus Centerpieces and Snow Cone Cupcakes!

I made one of my centerpieces today (I’m going to try and finish the rest tomorrow..minus the circus peanuts that is). I thought it turned out pretty cute. I used a plastic pop corn container (obviously) and filled it with tissue paper to start off…I found these cute batons that looked circus-y last month that I wanted to incorporate..so I just stuck ‘em in the middle! I then stuck some candy balloon suckers & a swirly sucker into the tissue paper. Next came the circus peanuts. What do you think? Yes folks, these are actual cupcakes..not snow cones made out of ice!
So the other day I was thinking about snow cones. I thought they would be fun for the whole event but didn’t know if I wanted to stand behind a snow cone machine making them throughout the whole party. I sat there thinking for a bit, and suddenly came up with the idea of ‘snow cone cupcakes’!!! I don’t know why I didn’t think of them earlier! Just use snow cone papers as cupcake liners and there ya have it!
I made some tester ones tonight :). I want the final ones to be more rounded on top but here’s my quick go at ‘em. Cute, huh?!
I just filled the snow cone papers with batter..baked them (now that was the tricky part..how to bake them in a vertical position) and covered the tops with frosting and bright colored sprinkles! I’m so excited about them! I’ve never seen anything like them. I’m patting myself on the back right now..hehe.
