Circus Animal CupcakesCircus animal cookies are such a classic! Their pink & white frosting with brightly colored sprinkles are so fun! And, definitely perfect for a circus-themed treat! As part of the #SocialCircus campaign, I’m sharing a few fun circus-themed ideas this month! Wouldn’t these circus animal cupcakes be perfect for a circus-themed baby shower or birthday party?! You could even include boxes of circus animal crackers as fun favors! Circus Party CupcakesThe added great part about these cupcakes is that they are SO easy to make. Just use your favorite cupcake recipe (or favorite box cake mix) – you can see that these were chocolate. Once you have baked the cupcakes and have allowed them to cool completely, just frost with white frosting (again, your favorite homemade recipe or store-bought). Then, add a circus animal cookie to each cupcake and sprinkle with muli-colored/rainbow nonpareil sprinkles! Circus CupcakesAnd really, if you were short on time (or don’t feel like baking), you could always buy some plain frosted cupcakes from the bakery. Then, all you’d have to do is spruce them up with the sprinkles and circus animal cookies! It doesn’t get much easier than that! For some added circus-themed fun, you could always put the cupcakes in brightly colored cupcake cups. The ones shown above are similar to these found on Amazon (affiliate link) —> Silicone Baking Cups. I love the way they turned out!
