You may or may not have gathered by my caliber of cheesy jokes and constant home decor projects that I’m much more of a homebody than I am a partier. However, a New Year’s eve party that includes cupcakes and sparkles, I can get behind that (nevermind the fact that this description could also be 90% of little girls’ birthday parties).

Now, this may be a bit hasty to say but this countdown cupcake DIY seriously takes all of four seconds to make. All you have to do is stick a few numbered sparkler cake candles into cupcakes or your favorite dessert and light them one by one until the clock strikes midnight! Easy peasy, and perfect for last minute celebrations.

  • I’m more of a homebody than a partier too – but I’ll do a cupcake and sparkler party any day! I’ve actually never seen any gold sparklers anywhere (numbers or letters) so now I’m on a mission. Thanks for sharing this and have a Happy New Year, Ash!

    What an adorable project! I will definitely have to try tracking down these candles!

    On a completely different note, what software do you use to make gifs? They look great!
