Mini Popsicle Cupcakes

These popsicle cupcakes are perfect for kids' parties or summer play dates and they are so easy to make!


  • 8 vanilla cupcakes, prepared and unfrosted
  • 1 can white frosting
  • 1 box Mike and Ikes
  • Wood toothpicks
  • Jimmies or Nonpareils, rainbow colored


  1. Cut off about a third of a toothpick on one end. Repeat for 16 toothpicks. Then, poke the pointed end of the toothpicks into 16 pieces of candy, making sure there are 2 of each different color.

  2. Next, frost each cupcake with the frosting. I used a piping bag to create a swirl, but you can also spread it on in a smooth layer. Once you've done that, place a set of mini popsicles on top of each cupcake. Make sure they are snug up against each other so they look like a twin popsicle. Sprinkle some jimmies or nonpareil sprinkles on top of your cupcake.

  3. Repeat the previous step until you have 8 cupcakes that have been fully assembled.
