I had so much fun making these Baby Rattle Cupcakes for the Virtual Baby Shower I am hosting here at Shower of Roses!
I was originally inspired by the Baby Rattle Cupcakes at Betty Crocker, making modifications so that I could incorporate Cupcake's nursery colors of Black, White and Bright Aqua Blue!
Butter cream Frosting tinted Aqua Blue
White Candy Roses
White Candy Melts
Black and White Ribbon
Instead of using lollipops for the rattle sticks, I created my own so that I could keep them all white. I dipped one end of a lollipop stick and one side of a mint lifesaver into some melted white candy. Once the candy had hardened I added a black and white ribbon bow and slid the stick into the side of the cupcakes, creating the Baby Rattles.
Didn't they turn out cute?!?!
My kids are all so excited to be able to "attend" this Baby Shower, and they can hardly wait to enjoy these cupcakes this afternoon!
