Helpful hints:

  • To keep it simple I used boxed cake and canned frosting. However, you can easily use your favorite cupcake and frosting recipe for a homemade treat.
  • To speed up the leotard drawing process, just draw one leotard then cut it out and trace it to make the rest.
  • To make each ballerina one of a kind, you can add drawings, jewels or other fun embellishments to the cardstock leotards.
