I am rebelling against the idea of "cupcake toppers" because I think that term discriminates against ice cream!
I love the alphabet pasta bobby pin tutorial I keep seeing on pinterest, and I remembered seeing a cake topper made with alphabet pasta awhile back. I mean, why stick to sprinkles and whipped cream on top of ice cream? The little gingerbread boy is a cake decoration I picked up from the grocery store, and I think he looks perfectly happy to be on top of a mountain of ice cream!
Get a little creative and stick them in your sprinkles too!
