How To Make It
  • 1

    Cut a square of freezer paper that is slightly bigger than the top of your cupcake (I did about a 3.5 inch square). You'll notice that one side of the paper is shiny and one side is matte. On the matte side, draw or trace your design.

  • 2

    Using a sharp craft knife, cut out your design (this is a job for adults!).

  • 3

    Frost your cupcakes with a knife or spatula. Lay your stencil, shiny side DOWN, on top of the frosting and press gently around the edges to make sure your crumbs or sprinkles won't leak out.

  • 4

    Pour graham cracker crumbs or sprinkles all over the top of the cupcake and then shake it gently over a bowl to remove the excess. Repeat.

  • 5

    Carefully peel off your stencil and repeat on remaining cupcakes. You may want to use a paper towel or napkin to wipe any excess frosting off the stencil between cupcakes.
