Birthday Dreams ... Pokemon Themed Cupcakes

The next themed I signed up for Birthday Dreams (Bringing Birthday's to Homeless kids) was a Pokemon party.  I did some googling and found some ideas I ran with from 1st Birthday Cakes and New Party Ideas.  From there I just kind of made it my own using candy clay to make the toppers.  

What you Need:
Candy Clay (White, Red, Yellow and Black)
Black Piping Gel
Cupcakes
Frosting

Frost your cupcakes and then get to work on your candy clay.  Since I make cupcakes once a week for this charity I have a stock on candy clay in my fridge.  I did make some new to make these ones.

Candy clay is so easy to make and it holds it shape unlike the fondant I use to make cupcake toppers.

Candy Clay
12oz Candy Melts (In Red, Yellow, Black and White)
1/4 Cup light corn Syrup

Melt your Candy Melts in microwave (mine takes about 2 minutes). Stir them to become smooth and add the corn syrup.  It will become thick and form a ball.  Wrap in plastic wrap and let it sit out and dry.  Takes a few hours or over night is best. (alexis note: I found to roll this out use a little powder sugar (like you would do with flour), also you have to kneed it a little like you would dough to make it easy to roll out).




For Pokeball:



Need:
White Candy Clay
Black Candy Clay
Red Candy Clay
Black Pipping Gel
Frosted Cupcakes
Circle Cutter
Small Circle Cutter (or a pipping tip like I did)
Knife

Roll out the red candy clay (with a little powder sugar), take a circle cutter and make red circles.  Then roll white candy clay (with a little powder sugar), take a circle cutter and make white circles. Take a knife and cut your circles in half.  Put a white and red half together by pushing them together.  Then take a small circle cutter to make white circles for the middle. I used a little black pipping gel to out line the small circle and the outline where the white and red meet.  Add to a frosted cupcake!


For Pikachu:

Need:
Yellow Candy Clay
Black Candy Clay
Red Candy Clay
Black Pipping Gel
Frosted Cupcakes
Circle Cutter

I rolled out my yellow candy clay (using a little powder sugar). I took my circle cutter to make the face.  for the ears I took a small amount of yellow and formed ear shapes.  I rolled out little balls in red for the cheeks. I added the ears with a little water and then with a little water to the back of the red balls I added the cheeks. I pushed them down to flatten them out.  Doing the same with black to make eyes and a nose.  For the mouth I tried a few different method's like a candy marker, or making it with black candy clay and then finally decided on using my Wilton pipping gel in black. Add to a frosted cupcake!


They turned out pretty darn cool if I must say so:

I picked up these awesome cupcake trays on Amazon.
So much better then the boxes I've been delivering in.
