Printable Sloth Cupcake Toppers
I have created some free printable sloth cupcake toppers for you to enjoy. You can print these cupcake toppers at home or at a local print shop. You could use normal printer paper or a slightly heavier card stock if you prefer.
These cupcake toppers are rectangular. I created them this way so that they are very easy to cut out and look great. (It’s a lot easier to cut a square neatly than it is a circle!). The kids can help with this too!
Once they are cut out simply attach them to a cake pop stick or a toothpick with sticky tape or hot glue. Then add them to your cupcakes.
Check out the photo below to see what they look like.
You could make these cupcakes with green buttercream icing and stick a mint leaf candy on the side as well.
