1st birthday cupcake toppers

I’ve found that a great (and easy) way to decorate cupcakes is to premake little toppers..

I’m making a cake for a friend’s daughter’s 1st birthday – the info I got was that it was to be really pink and girly, and there to be butterflies and hearts.

Because I have a busy week with cakes ahead of me (definitely a case of when it rains, it pours), I premade these toppers a few weeks ago. Although they look fairly intricate, they are actually really simple toppers – I made them all with cutters that I had.

I stamped out circles in fuschia and pale pink fondant (that I mixed with some tylo/tylose powder.

Using my ribbon cutter..

Using a small heart cutter, then stamping an A on a circle using my letterpress..

Using a small blossom cutter and then placing an edible pearl in the centre of each..

Using my sunflower cutter and using edible pearls for the centre..

And finally, using a butterfly cutter, with 3 pearls for the centre and dotting around the outline with a toothpick..

I let the butterflies dry in some cardboard before gluing them to the topper

There you have it 🙂 Cupcake toppers that look impressive, but are very simply to make – I think it took me about an hour to make these, so they’re not time consuming at all.
