Paper Cupcake Topper Instructions:
- Find an image or images you would like for your cupcake toppers. Print them out onto photo paper or cardstock. *You can also print your images onto round labels. If you use this method, you can skip the next step.
- Punch out or cut out your images using scissors into whatever shape you would like. The most popular cupcake topper shapes are circles, scalloped, rectangle and square.
- Select cardstock for your background and punch out or cut out that as well. *The background needs to be slightly larger than your image. So, if your image is 1", your background paper needs to be 1 1/2" or larger.
- Attach a lollipop stick, toothpick, Popsicle stick or skewer using glue or foam dots to your cupcake topper. You can attach the stick to the back of the cardstock or in between the cardstock and image.
- Optional: Embellish your paper cupcake toppers with ribbon, gems, die cuts shapes, cut outs, etc. Instead of two layers of matting, add 3 or more. The ideas are endless!

A vanilla cupcake with chocolate buttercream swirl topped with a fondant Hello Kitty. A present for one of my daughters' class mates.
These cupcakes have a thin layer of buttercream icing which I then covered with Tiffany blue fondant cut with a scalloped cutter. The flowers are made of gumpaste then brushed with pearl luster dust. - by cakecentral.com

The term "cupcake" was first mentioned in 1828 in Eliza Leslie's Receipts cookbook. In the early 19th century, there were two different uses for the name "cup cake" or "cupcake". In previous centuries, before muffin tins were widely available, the cakes were often baked in individual pottery cups, ramekins, or molds and took their name from the cups they were baked in. This is the use of the name that has persisted, and the name of "cupcake" is now given to any small cake that is about the size of a teacup. The name "fairy cake" is a fanciful description of its size, which would be appropriate for a party of diminutive fairies to share.
The other kind of "cup cake" referred to a cake whose ingredients were measured by volume, using a standard-sized cup, instead of being weighed. Recipes whose ingredients were measured using a standard-sized cup could also be baked in cups; however, they were more commonly baked in tins as layers or loaves. In later years, when the use of volume measurements was firmly established in home kitchens, these recipes became known as 1234 cakes or quarter cakes, so called because they are made up of four ingredients: one cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three cups of flour, and four eggs. They are plain yellow cakes, somewhat less rich and less expensive than pound cake, due to using about half as much butter and eggs compared to pound cake. The names of these two major classes of cakes were intended to signal the method to the baker; "cup cake" uses a volume measurement, and "pound cake" uses a weight measurement. - quoted from cupcake, wikipediaToday, a lot of confectioners/ bakers are learning and designing more and more colorful cupcakes that everyone will adoringly eat!
