I found the idea on Pinterest when I needed a dessert to send with my husband for a baby shower at work. Cake decorating/frosting is not in my skill set, but there are lots of cute ways you could decorate and customize these rattles!
She is having a girl, can you tell? :)
The most time consuming part is
tying the bows on to the lollipop sticks,
double-sided ribbon helps.
Use a toothpick to make your hole in your cupcake and wrapper to help ease the lollipop stick in, likewise for the gum drop on the bottom of the “rattle”.
I used a lemon cake mix I doctored for the cupcakes,
substituting buttermilk for the water,
4 eggs instead of 3, and the same amount of oil
called for in the mix.
And tinted cream cheese frosting with food coloring.
Celebrate It 360° Grosgrain Ribbon (Michaels) for double-sided bows along with lollipop sticks (Wilton) and gumdrops from Dollar Tree, aka candy central.
