Friends TV Show Cupcakes and Toppers are so great for a “Friends” party of any kind! Could those printable toppers BE any cuter?
When your Instagram profile states “F.R.I.E.N.D.S” as the first of your interests, it must be important. I can’t even explain how much I love this show. Harry Potter comes in a really close second! I even made a whole list of Harry Potter party food ideas, like Butterbeer Freeze, Harry Potter Cupcakes, and Butterbeer Cookies. Time to get more Friends recipes going!
I have a feeling that if you’re a Friends fan you’re losing your mind a little bit right now. That’s how I felt when I made these cupcakes! I had my twin sister on the phone multiple times just to make sure I was getting them right. I love how they turned out!
Oh yes, I included Ross and his unagi. “It’s not something you are, it’s something you have!”
I made 12 different designs so you can have a great variety of toppers for your cupcakes. These cupcakes are kind of a tribute to Monica, my favorite character for the show. Her apartment has wonderfully purple walls and, of course, the yellow picture frame around the peephole.
What is the TV show Friends about?
Friends is a 90’s comedy about six friends who go through just about every life experience imaginable in the hilarious of ways, and they do all of them together! Love, marriage, divorce, children, heartbreaks, fights, new jobs, and everything in between. The show takes place in Manhattan, NY.
What is the Best Episode of Friends?
The Thanksgiving and holiday episodes are some of the best episodes of friends. For instance, “The One With All the Resolutions” from season 5 is especially funny as all the friends make resolutions they struggle to keep. It’s hilarious!
How Do I Print the Friends Cupcake Toppers?
You can download the Friends cupcake toppers from here then print them!
WHAT IS THE BEST PAN FOR BAKING CUPCAKES?
USA Pan is my favorite pan for cupcakes and muffins. The bakes are always even and the pan doesn’t take a beating after each use. And it’s affordable!
WHAT IS THE BEST FROSTING TIP TO USE FOR CUPCAKES?
The 1M star tip from Wilton is my favorite frosting tip and I use it for almost all of my cupcakes! I also use 16-inch Wilton disposable frosting bags.
I was so excited to give these cupcakes away and even asked my neighbors who liked the show! These lovelies couldn’t just go to anybody. The receiver had to appreciate them for how great they were!
It took me the longest time to photograph these cupcakes. For instance, I could not decide which topper to use for what photo and where each cupcake should be placed… These cupcakes were just too important to mess up!
