Make dozens of cupcakes in a variety of flavors. Decorate the cupcakes with edible glitter and beads. Put a sugar flower on top of each one for added beauty.

Sparkle Food Picks

Cut small banners from plain pieces of white paper that will fit at the top of a toothpick. Attach the banner to the top half of your toothpick with a glue gun. Write Happy New Year's on the banner with a glitter pen. Stick a food pick in each one of your cupcakes.

Cupcake Display

  • Set up a long table against a wall in your party area. Decorate your table by hanging a fancy New Year's Eve banner across it. Place sparkly candles and other glitter-enhanced decorations around your cupcake platter and displays.
  • Sprinkle your entire table and platters with edible glitter.
  • Place your cupcakes on your dish displays and platters.

Stack a few cupcake boxes on one end of the table. This will give your guests the choice of either eating their cupcake at the party or taking it home to enjoy later.
