Upsherin Cupcakes


These precious cupcakes are so easy to make and bound to be a big hit for your three year old, as he awaits his own Yarmulka.


  • Mini White Cupcakes
  • Yellow candy melts
  • Black fondant
  • Cupcake wrappers (go to  omgdesign for free printables)
  1. Copy template onto hard stock paper. ( The template given is for a mini cupcake.)
  2. Wrap the cupcake wrapper around the cupcake. Secure with scotch tape.


3. Cover the top of the cupcake with the melted candy melts. Dip a toothpick into the candy melts and draw the payos.

4. Make a yarmulke out of the fondant and place on top of the cupcake. Use some of the melted candy melts as “glue”.

5. Using a knife, make a mark on the yarmulke in both directions to create 4 sections.

6. Draw an initial on the yarmulka using a toothpick dipped in the candy melts.
