These sweet cupcakes were made for a sweet 16 party for the daughter of one of my co-workers. We decided to keep them pretty simple and just add a little bit of flare with some sugar pearls and sugar sparkles.

Chocolate cupcakes were iced simply with white and pink buttercream swirls. Then a mix of purple and gold sugar pearls were sprinkled on top of some, and purple and gold sugar sparkles on top of others. A bunch of ’16′s and the birthday girl’s name were then piped onto wax paper with melted purple chocolate, sprinkled with more sugar sparkles, and then placed on top of the cupcakes as the final topper.

Hopefully these were popular among the girls at the party!
