Throwing a pirate party, but too busy to make a cake? This pirate cupcake kit is the answer! Pirate parties are so much fun, and if you are short on time cupcake kits can make your party a cinch! Meri Meri has a whole line of cupcake kits, and this is one of my favorites. When I am in a pinch, and need a cute cupcake solution, these cupcake kits are my go-to. I made these cupcakes for my nephew’s second birthday.
The kit comes with 24 baking cups and 24 assorted toppers. As usual, I love the polka dot baking cups in this set, and because they are black, the colors are still bright even after baking! The parrot, pirate ship, pirate hat, and pirate flag toppers are too cute! My favorite is the bright parrot in a pirate hat.
This kits makes it super simple to throw together a party fit for a pirate in no time. If you are too busy to bake, you can just purchase cupcakes at the store and set them in the baking cups from the kit. Then pop on the toppers and you are set for a marvelous party for all of your mateys.
These cupcakes are frosted in yellow buttercream. I used AmeriColor lemon yellow to get this shade.
The parrot with the eye-patch is so fun. All of the Meri Meri cupcake kits have really unique and detailed toppers that set them apart from other cupcake kits.
The cupcake stand is actually a Halloween cupcake stand from Wilton. I just left off the haunted house topper, and it worked perfectly for this pirate party. I hope you have as much fun with this cupcake kit as I did. Whether you are throwing a pirate party or just looking for a fun baking project to do with your kids, this kit is the perfect thing!
