In honor of the new Cinderella movie hitting theatres next week, here’s a quick look at a set of fondant cupcake toppers made for a Cinderella themed birthday party last year. Better late than never, right?
Cinderella was one of my favourite Disney cartoons growing up. I had quite a few sick days in my early years, and this flick was always the first to hit the VCR! (Until I got older and graduated to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, of course!)I may not have had a Princess Party in my childhood, but if I did, I think young Megan would have enjoyed both the look and the taste of these cupcakes!
Quite a long while back I had an order for some girly Hello Kitty cupcakes! I quickly got to work researching how I was going to make the little toppers out of fondant. Right away I found some awesome Hello Kitty cutters on amazon, and I ordered them from Japan without hesitation. I added the bow (which I made using a separate mold that I have), and completed the face details using royal icing. I even steamed these little kitties to make them shiny and extra fabulous 🙂
What made these cupcakes even more fun was unwrapping the liner to reveal the pink confetti cake inside!
There’s nothing I love more than a baking project with a theme! There’s something about duplicating something from print that can be so satisfying if it turns out right!
A while back, I was asked to make some elephant-themed cupcakes for a lovely little lady’s first birthday. Luckily for me, I was provided with some of the party decor for inspiration, and the rest fell into place from there!
For the elephants, I obviously didn’t have the specific cutter I needed, so I cut them out by hand using the small rotary cutter from my gumpaste tool set.I happened to find these floral liners in the exact colours that I needed…it was a pretty exciting day at Michael’s to say the least!
Stay tuned for more themed cakes and cupcakes in the next few weeks!
Have a wonderful weekend!
