Birthday stars and cupcake decorations

Birthday cake

I love little decorations on cupcakes, even if it's just sprinkles. They're an easy way to spruce up even an average-looking cupcake, and to me, the way a cupcake looks is just as important as the way it tastes (and let's not forget the way it smells - chocolate frosting seems to seep into my bloodstream even before I've taken my first bite!).

What are your favorite cupcake decorations?

White non-pareils! They can be cute, sassy and classy, all at once!

I love to use the sprinkle sugar! It comes in pretty colors and it's just sugary, but it makes cupcakes almost too sweet. That and I like rainbow ball sprinkles because they remind me of birthday cake!

The simpler the better for me! I love a tiny flower as an embellishment, sprinkle sugar or plain old sprinkles. Yum!
