Academy Awards ~ Oscar Cupcakes

Welcome to Cupcake Tuesday! Be sure to check out the ALL NEW Cupcake Heaven page! And if you are in need to a special cupcake design, use the “Be a Hero” area!

On Sunday, the glitz and glam of the Academy Awards will hit Hollywood, as they roll out the red carpet! Will you be hosting an Oscars Party? Last year, we put together a fun party and enjoyed some good food, fun games and of course…Oscar Cupcakes!

There is sure to be plenty of Oscar Parties in Hollywood, but if you are hosting your own, I thought you might like to bake some cupcakes…complete with free cupcake topper printables!

The cupcakes line the red carpet with each of the movies that are nominated for Best Picture. The cupcake toppers were designed by my son, Nick, they aren’t anything fancy, but I think he did a great job!

He also created a printable version for you…open the Oscar Cupcake Toppers PDF, print them on cardstock, cut and add to the cupcakes.

The cupcakes are baked in gold liners and frosted with red icing using a #1M Tip, and topped with gold sprinkles. The Oscar Award is made with yellow candy melts and gold sprinkles, watch for the directions for him over at Lifetime Moms tomorrow.

Update: Here are the directions for the Oscar chocolate topper over at Lifetime Moms.

To finish the display, the ropes are created from gum drops, short skewers and gold ribbon. The decorations are from last year’s Oscar Party and I found them at Party City, including the red carpet.
