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