I made these for my cute friend Jessica’s baby shower this morning. They were pretty easy to make and came out pretty cute.
1 batch cupcakes, your choice (I made lemon white chocolate chip)
1 batch frosting, your choice (I used my favorite Buttercream Icing)
1 – 2 bags large gumdrops
paper straws, cut in half
various decorations such as M&M’s, mini M&M’s, colored sugars, sprinkles, etc
1 Prepare cupcakes and frosting.
2 Cut straws in half and press a gumdrop onto the end of each straw.
3 Frost and decorate cupcakes as desired.
4 Using a toothpick or a cake tester, poke a hole into the side of each cupcake through the paper liner, turning a bit to make the hole larger then press straw with gumdrop on end into the hole to make the rattle handle.
