I had grand plans to make a rainbow cake a little like this one… but then sanity prevailed for a moment and I knew I’d never manage it with all the other party things I had going on. So we settled for chocolate, choc chip cup cakes with icing and rainbow sprinkles, and to make them just that little bit more rainbowey (it is so too a word!) I made little rainbow cup cake flags and little rainbow cup cake toppers.
The little flags were super quick and easy and looked great and the cup cake toppers worked out even better than I had expected.. even with my wonkily (and that is a word too!) cut circles!
If you’re planning your own rainbow party I’m sharing my cupcake flags and toppers as printable pdfs.
The flags are best printed on regular paper, just cut them out, fold them in half and use double sided tape or a dab of glue to stick them together around a tooth pick. The rainbows are best printed on cover paper or light card. If you have a 2inch circle punch or cutter they should fit that perfectly, if not grab your scissors and cut your own wonky circles. Fold them in half and punch a hole in the centre of each one. The toothpick goes through the little hole and you glue or double sided tape it in place and the circle closed.
You can download the flags >here< and the rainbows >here<. We also made up some little ‘thank you for coming’ tags for the treat bags and you can download those >here<.

And thanks also for popping by my blog and saying Hi. I’ve been following your blog for a while. But have probably been slack and not left a comment.
Hope you have a lovely weekend.

:: ponders how I could fit them into Heidi’s lego party theme ::
what a great idea Kate ! They could be tweeaked for Christmas trees too.
They look grand! Good for you picklebums. I am planning to get away with as little as possible for my little mate’s party this weekend. You know me – not really one for these kiddies parties! I wish I had your creativity!
