Birthday Dreams ... Princess Cupcakes

I made these princess cupcakes the day before I had to leave on my Canada trip for Birthday Dreams (a great charity that brings birthday's to homeless kids).  This was BEFORE I learned my new favorite trick to make the Candy Clay.  I used fondant, what I was trying to make was actual crowns that stood up on the cupcakes.  WELL they started to crack and look like crap so I went with plan B and made them flat and look like castle's.  They are not one of my favorite cakes I've done but they did make a little girl smile.


What you Need:
Cupcakes
Frosting
Fondant
Pink Food Coloring
Pearl decorating balls

I used my Sturdy Buttercream Frosting tinted purple with some fresh blueberries in there to go with the blueberry cupcakes I made.  

I made pink fondant using the rolled buttercream fondant.  To make the peaks I used my star cutter point  I then made 4 point castles.  I added a pearl decorating ball on each point. When I added the cupcakes to the box they needed a little something special so I sprinkled some pearls ontop of the cupcake.

Cole even got into the helping mode with me!

  1. Candy clay that's a great idea, can you use cookies cutters? I'm thinking of Christmas ideas

    1. Yes the Clay worked AWESOME with the candy clay. I used it to make the footballs in previous post. I can't wait to make it with more cutters.
