Know a Starbucks fan?

Here’s how to easily decorate cupcakes to look like a cute latte! You could use this trick to decorate store bought cupcakes or bake your favorite cupcake flavor. How yummy would pumpkin spice flavored cupcakes be for these?!

Just top white frosted cupcakes with drizzled caramel or chocolate sauce.  Then add a coffee sleeve and finish with green straw to make an adorable latte looking treat.


Starbucks Latte Decorated Cupcakes

Supplies Needed:

Chocolate Cupcakes with White Frosting (or any desired flavor cupcake with white frosting)
Chocolate Syrup
Plastic Disposable 3 oz. Portion Cups
Starbucks Paper Cardboard Sleeves (Amazon actually sells these OR just re-use ones you have)
Green Straws


  •  Turn plastic portion cup upside down and place cardboard sleeve over cup. (Note: You may have to shorten sleeve and staple back shut if too wide.)
  • Stack cupcake on top of plastic cup to make it appear taller.
  • Drizzle with chocolate or caramel sauce over the top.
  • Place shortened green straw on top of cupcake.

These were made by a talented friend of mine for another coffee obsessed friend of ours to celebrate her birthday. She LOVED them and it made her feel so special. I also love this idea for a teacher breakfast, baby or wedding shower, or really to spoil anyone who is a Starbucks fan!
