I pinned this great idea on Southern Belle to make Batman cupcake liners for the cupcakes. It makes a big impact with not much time involved on the day of the party. You simply frost your cupcakes with colored icing and slide them into the pre-made cupcake liners.
Anything I can do ahead of time I am always on board with. Typically I will create a more elaborate cake, such as the Transformers cake, or the Thomas the Train cake. This time, I was doing so many other projects for this party, I just did not have time to deal with a fancy cake.
These cupcake liners were really a cinch to put together.
Cut the black liners out. I found a great cupcake liner template at Skip to My Lou. Instead of printing only two liners per page, I cut out one to use as a template on heavy cardstock. I was able to get 6 – 7 liners out of one 12 x 12 sheet of card stock. I used some double sided tape to stick the liners together. My awesome hubby helped with this part since I was running out of time to get stuff done!
I then created a page of printable bat symbols that I printed out on sticker paper. I used my 1″ circle punch to cut them out. The images are more oval than round, so I had to trim them a little with scissors to remove any remaining white that was showing.
Then, I just attached the sticker to the cupcake liners. Here are the finished liners.
