Next on my list for Birthday Dreams (Charity delivering Birthdays to Homeless Kids) was for a 16 year old girl. She requested Zebra and her favorite color was Hot Pink. I did some google searching and came across a few different ideas. I found this idea on Flickr and ran with it.
I picked up a Wilton Sugar Sheet in Zebra Print. I happen to buy a sugar sheet cutter earlier in the year when Michael's had them and the inserts marked down on clearance. I tinted the frosting to hot pink.
What you Need:
Baked Cupcakes (see Recipe below)
Frosting (I used my sturdy buttercream)
Hot Pink Coloring (Americolor Electric Pink)
Zebra Print Cupcake Liners
I took my Sheet Punch with the sugar sheet to make different shapes and sizes to punch out the toppers. I used one sheet and was able to cover almost all the cupcakes. To finish them off I used some White Candy Clay (click for recipe) and some silver shimmer dust to mold 16.
For the cupcakes I used a Moist and Fluffy Vanilla Cupcake recipe I found on Life Love and Sugar.Ingredients
