No magic-themed party would be complete without a rabbit being pulled from a hat!

My creative project this week was making 24 magician's hat cake cups with chocolate rabbits for a 7-year-old girl's birthday party. My husband and my mom (who was visiting this week) would probably agree, I became mildly obsessed with figuring out how to make a magician's hat that could be easily transported by little, messy kids and still be edible.

The hats are made of foam can coozies (that I painted black). And the hat rims are cut out of black foam sheets from Hobby Lobby. I put a paper cup inside the foam coozies and filled them with layers of mini-cupcakes, frosting, regular-sized cupcakes, more frosting, and then topped them all with crushed Oreos. The rabbit suckers are made from white chocolate candy melts and a plastic chocolate mold I found on Amazon. (Thank goodness for 2-day delivery!)

At the last minute, I decided to make some magic wand forks. I went to Freddy's Frozen Custard and they sold me some of their jumbo pink straws. I taped off the tops and painted the bottoms black. Then, I wedged the black forks inside the straws. Worked like a charm. Magical, one might even say!
