While I do like to bake and create cute crafts, I’m not a cookie decorator and wasn’t up for giving it a go this round so I went with a semi homemade approach.
I picked up some store bought cupcakes and made a popular no bake dessert that I spruced up with the help of my mermaid party printables!
You may have seen those fun sprinkle mixes in stores that are full of colored sugars, shimmer pearls and shaped sprinkles. I made my own with the help of a few small and affordable sprinkles packs on sale at Michaels. I sprinkled them on my cupcakes and homemade green dyed Rice Krispies Treats to add that mermaid sparkle.
I grabbed two sizes of cookie cutters and got to work cutting up my sticky treats into star shapes.
They looked so shiny and tasted so yummy with that extra crunch!
The store bought cupcakes got a little upgrade with the help of this custom sprinkle mix, a second cupcake liner and my mermaid tail cupcake toppers.
You can recreate this look and delight your friends by downloading my mermaid tail cupcake toppers here. Just trim and tape onto a toothpick for more mermaid party fun!
Mix and match these aqua and purple tails on your dessert table!
When it comes to sending your guests home from your special day, one idea would be to gift them a hint of the sea with a pack of bubbles!
Attach these mermaid tail splash favor tags to complete this mermaid party look! I get asked ALOT where I got these bubbles and it was 2 sets found at Michaels during Easter season!
