Hip Hip Hooray: Sweetest Birthday Setup Ever!

A little while ago I bought a blue raspberry cake mix and frosting at the grocery store for no other reason than it looked fun and different.  As soon as I saw the Hip Hip Hooray collection, I knew my bright cake mix and frosting would go perfectly with this collection.  

I like making cupcakes for birthdays because they are less of a fuss than a cake.  Create a fun cupcake display by adding a birthday banner and some fun cupcake wrappers and toppers to each individual cupcake.  Doodlebug makes it extra easy with their Pixie collections!
Create a simple banner by wrapping straws with washi tape and inserting them into a pair of cupcakes.  Adhere the banner stickers to twine and tie around the straws.  This birthday banner would look amazing atop a birthday cake, too. 
Each cupcake is wrapped with a plaid wrapper and topped with a Pixie flag or two.  I can hardly resist this little robot wearing a tie!
Add dimension to your display by placing the banner cupcakes on paper cupcake stands.

Happy celebrating!
