Free Printable: Ninja Cupcake Toppers

For no particular reason I got the idea to make ninja cupcake toppers. Siders? There was no birthday, no party to attend, no potluck, it was purely just because. And let me add, one great thing about having a blog is it gives me the excuse to make just about anything without question, case in point:

Me: Jason(my husband), I'm going to make some ninjas popping out of cupcakes.

Jason: *Look of confusion*

Me: It's for the blog.

Jason: Oh, okay.

See, all I have to say is "it's for the blog" and somehow it magically makes sense. Now, if I could somehow transfer that effect to buying shoes, I'd really be on to something.

Okay, back to the cupcake ninja toppers/siders. I started to think why should the tops of the cupcakes get all the love, how about the sides? The sides could have something jetting out of them and then it hit me, Ninjas!



Right click, copy, save, paste and print. You might need to scale the size of them. Once printed, cut out, tape to toothpicks and have fun. For the ninjas on top, make sure the printed part does not touch the frosting. You don't want ink running into the frosting.

Very cute!

Totally get you on the blog thing. I have done the same thing! And it's funny to watch my 3 year old go around with a play camera and 'take pictures' of food and stuff. lol

I wonder if y our magic phrase, "it's for the Blog" works on all husbands? I need a new computer. Saying it's for the Blog makes more sense than saying I need new underwear, and it's for the Blog.

To the best of my knowledge, Blogs go Comando!

Marisa said...

Oh yes. My husband and I have the same "It's for the blog" conversations. Except these days he rarely asks. He just assumes my crazy antics are blog-related.

Great ninjas! I might do these for my brother's birthday.

I'm in love with these "toppers!-- only I don't bake western-style sweets much. I'll have to figure out how to use these with wagashi (traditional Japanese confections). My fellow ninja-lovers (especially my kids and their friends) will go wild! Thanks so much for the idea. :D
