Party Hat Cupcakes

Close-up of three party hat cupcakes
I feel like there have been so many birthday parties lately…
That’s probably why I have party hats on the brain.
And while we are on the subject of parties…let’s talk RSVPs, shall we?
If you have an invitation that you haven’t RSVP’d to yet…take a moment, let them know and then come back and continue reading.
It literally takes 2 seconds.
I’ll wait…
We have all been in this situation where we send out 20 invites and literally get 2 RSVPs.
First it makes you think you are a huge loser and that no one wants to come…
Then it makes you mad…because you know that on the invitation you have carefully made sure to include your home phone, cell phone AND email address.
With all these options there is no reason not to respond.
You don’t even have to talk to me…although, I can’t quite understand not wanting to talk to MOI, I’m super nice and friendly and chatty…ummm, maybe too that why you don’t want to call me?  Am I THAT lady?  Oh man.
So, ok…send a text, an email..shoot, write me a letter…
You don’t have to talk to me in person, because face it, we all know that unless the party is a close friend’s, we hate calling and saying no.
Trust me, I understand.
Just call me the RSVP Police.
I will answer to that, I don’t mind.
And above all…if you don’t RSVP…do not show up.
There will be no goodie bag for you.
No slice of cake.
No Party hat.
And if said party hat is atop a yummy cupcake you will wishing you had sent that text.
Like the Party Hat Snack Mix that I made last week this is fun and easy.
You’ll need
cupcakes baked and frosted
sugar cones
 candy melts
Large jelly candies
First, start with sugar cones
Then melt some candy melts in whatever color you want.
Dip the cones in the candy melts and transfer to wax paper
While the cones are still wet attach the large sprinkles for polka dots…
then make a small hole in the bottom of your large jelly candy and press gently on top of the sugar cone.
Let the cones set…approx 15 minutes.
Next grab your cupcake and frost…don’t worry if it’s messy.
Then pour your small sprinkles on a plate
Roll the sides of the cupcake in the small sprinkles.
It doesn’t have to be perfect.
Now gently press the cone on top of the cupcake.
You’re done!!  Now sit back and stare at the cuteness you created!
Go respond to those RSVPs!!

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

Oops…posted this on the wrong, er, post! Hey, if you wanna give me the knives, I wouldn't say no! ?

As I was saying….I only just stumbled onto your fabulous blog and found the post about RSVPs HILARIOUS! One would have thought I WROTE it!

My solution to those non/late RSVPers? I make SURE I put "Regrets Only Please!" on our invites.

Since I've done that, I can't tell you how many people actually reply when they don't have to!

People are weird sometimes. Like me apparently.

These are so cute!!! wonderful idea for a princess party also. I am a fan on responding to RSVPs, I get so mad when I sent party invitations and I do not hear from anybody, it is such a Hispanic thing that drives me insane.

Those are adorable. I'll bring the Nutella pop-tarts next week for you, you bring these next week for me. Deal?

Oh, and I dislike non-RSVPers too. The jerks.

Super cute cupcakes! and I am so with you on the rsvp's..dealing with that right now and it's not easy to plan a party where I am making personalized things for the kids, when I don't know who will/wont be there.

This idea is so darn cute! My kids are older now, with no grandkids yet (thank goodness) but I'm sure one day they will have some kids. And I have a whole bunch of great nieces and nephews. I'm sure I can find an occasion to make some of these.About that RSVP issue, it drives me nuts too. And another thing is the people who put regrets only, I'm cool with that, but people just don't call with regrets. My nephew just had a party and invited a ton of people, only a couple called with regrets and then the… Read more »
