While you are waiting for the cupcakes to cool, draw pictures with the black edible marker onto the white toppers. Don’t worry if you are not good at drawing, it’s pretty easy to do this by tracing an image and then using a blunt toothpick to outline the design onto the icing. The children might like to draw their own pictures too.
