The piñata her kids chose was a colorful star shaped one. (Originally they were thinking the traditional burro. The star is much easier, but the donkey would be fun to try some time too!)
The toppers on these are made from fondant and colored with edible ink marker.
*Note: The below is my first attempt at a photo tutorial. How on earth do you bloggers do these? I much be really clumsy because I found taking photos while decorating cupcakes VERY DIFFICULT! End Note.* :)
Cut a small hole and fill with rainbow sugar pearls.
Aren't they fun?!
A little dollop in the center to build the swirl around.
Start on the outside and circle outward a few times.
Add a few more mini rainbow sprinkles (not pictured) and...
Tada! A fun surprise inside and still plenty of cupcake to enjoy with these piñata cupcakes!
