25 Cocomelon Cupcakes Ideas for Children Party

Parents with toddlers must have heard about Cocomelon. Well, who doesn’t know about the famous Cocomelon YouTube channel? Cocomelon is a YouTube channel that provides nursery rhymes and songs for children. In 2021, it has become one of the most watched channels in the United States and the world, second only to T-Series. Due to its popularity, Cocomelon becomes a great inspiration for children parties, which may also applies for party decor and snacks, too. When it comes to children party, it won’t complete without cupcakes, and Cocomelon Cupcakes ideas are being hunted by parents who are planning a party for their children. After all, cupcakes are definitely one of the must-have items.

The channel itself has several characters, ranging from adults, babies, and animals interacting together in daily life. Of course, the notable characters include the Cocomelon, the smiling watermelon who appears in the beginning of the video. These characters become an inspiration for room decoration, party décor, and even rise to the idea of Cocomelon cupcakes, which is one of the most popular desserts. However, note that a cupcake always has a certain decoration to go with. If you are looking for some Cocomelon cupcake ideas, you are in the right place. 

1. Cocomelon Royal Icing

Having an icing as a cupcake topper, especially with Cocomelon themes, can be tricky if you intend on doing cupcakes DIY projects by yourself. But if you are a beginner in baking and cake ideas stuff, you can make it easier by having Cocomelon royal icing sent to you. All you need to do is to prepare the cupcakes, have a little bit of buttercream on top of them, and put the cupcakes icing. The round shape would cover the buttercream so you don’t have to worry about the mess.

Another decoration you can do for your Cocomelon cupcakes is to have a Cocomelon cake topper to be part of the decoration. This Cocomelon cake topper is good if you want to show a colorful party décor with the various cupcakes colors. Not only can you place it for the cupcakes, you can have it for snacks display décor, too. 

3. Cocomelon Fondant

Fondant is another type of decoration used by bakers to decorate cakes. It is often used to have that smooth and neat surface on a cake. You can have the fondant as your cupcake toppers too, by having the Cocomelon printed fondant. You can have it printed on A4 size fondant sheet or you can request it to be pre-cut, for efficiency. 

4. Edible Wafer Topper

Similar to the royal icing, Cocomelon wafer topper is also one of the options you can have for making your Cocomelon cupcakes come to life. The wafer topper is thinner, and is made from starch. Thus, it is far lighter and suitable for an extra buttercream, since the wafer doesn’t add the sugar level to the cupcakes. 

5. Your Own Fondant Toppers

A great option if you want to have cupcakes is to make the topper on your own. While you can’t make a fondant from scratch, you can make it from a basic white fondant. You can add the color to your liking. This idea is also good if you want to have a toddler party whereas the guests can make their own Cocomelon cupcake toppers. 

6. White Topper Base

A 4A size Cocomelon fondant usually comes as a whole, meaning you should cut it yourself. Just in case this is happening to you, or you simply want to use a basic white fondant as a base decoration for your Cocomelon cupcakes, don’t panic! You need to cut it into the same size neatly. Be creative and use a cookie cutter to achieve the same size for your cupcakes design.

7. Green Buttercream Base

Every watermelon (hence the Cocomelon logo) needs something green to begin with. You might have the toppers, but it can be more than that, too. Have the buttercream colored in green, and use some decoration tips to décor the cupcakes. You can be creative and use every type of tip you have for the buttercream.

8. Cocomelon Animal Toppers

As we follow the Cocomelon series, we are also introduced to the animal characters between the songs. These animal characters could have some recognition in your cake ideas too, you know. The animals could be an additional topper too, to add more variation to the characters presented on your cupcakes. To have such a look, checkout these Cocomelon animal toppers

9. 3D Figurines Topper

If a flat fondant or 2 dimensional toppers sounds mainstream to you, you can apply new cake ideas by having a 3D Cocomelon figurine to sit as the cupcake toppers. The figurines might not be edible. However, it is a great option if you don’t want to much sugar intake in your Cocomelon cupcakes ideas, but still want to have the theme for party décor anyway.

10. Personalized Name on Fondant

Aside from the printed fondant you can have, you can be more creative with the fondant, too. Especially when it is your kids’ birthday, or you want to give the cupcake as a gift for another kid, have it personalized. Print their name (and their birthday ages) on the fondant cupcake toppers with alphabet letter stamps. Having their name personalized on the cupcake would mean so much to them.

Just in case you have a sweet tooth, adding additional sweets on the top of the cupcakes might be a good idea. Now we know that Cocomelon is a watermelon inspired logo (hence the name), why don’t they have the cupcakes watermelon toppings instead. To do that, you would need the watermelon slices gummy to add as the topping. 

12. Rainbow Topper

Another part of the Cocomelon channel that everyone would notice is that the Cocomelon writing is written with rainbow colors. Apart from the characters, we can use rainbow toppers to add, making the cupcakes rainbow colored. After all, a child’s party décor won’t be complete without some rainbow, right? 

13. Green Cupcake Paper

When you are about to go all out for Cocomelon cupcakes ideas, it is best not to only focus on the toppers and cupcakes icing. While we are at it, we might as well pay attention to some other details like the cupcake paper. We know that the Cocomelon logo is dominated by green, so the best move is to have the cupcakes baked in a green cupcake paper. Especially if your buttercream icing goes green too. 

14. Number Cupcake Arrangement

However good the cupcake decoration is, it might go to waste if it is not in proper arrangement. Especially for a birthday occasion, you might want to try arranging the cupcakes into your kid’s birthday age. Having to do it with cupcakes might be easier. When you use a whole cake, you want to have the number decorated on top of the cake or you need to cut the cake accordingly, and that would cause you a lot of mess. 

15. Rainbow Buttercream

We’ve known earlier that the Cocomelon logo comes as a watermelon. If you want something more creative, you can play with the cupcakes colors. Have the color yellow, pink, and green mixed in a piping bag, and have the colors glide as you pour them to the cupcakes. This works great either you want to add more toppers or let it be as such. Either way, you still have your cupcakes watermelon colored.

Mixing three colors of buttercream might be tricky, and if you are not careful enough, the color might not glide smoothly. However, if you still want to have that cupcake watermelon themed, you can still have the Cocomelon cupcakes ideas by having the green and pink color to go separately. You can separate the two colors by a piece of fondant, and have the pink buttercream decorated by chocolate sprinkles.

Sometimes, adding the toppers on the top of the cupcakes feels mainstream. It is supposed to go on the top alright, but you can have fun and try framing the character in the toppers with green buttercream. Not only does that serve some creative media-framed character, but your cupcakes would have a neat appearance.

18. Other than Green Cocomelon
