Grape Vine & Wine Bottle Cupcake Toppers (Modeling Chocolate)

Yesterday I showed you the Wine Glass Cake my friend and I made for my mom's surprise 60th birthday party. Today I will post the cupcakes made for the party! I found a few ideas on Pinterest and then made my own creations.  I started with an idea for Grape Vine Cupcakes on

What you Need:
White Modeling Chocolate
Green Modeling Chocolate
Purple Modeling Chocolate
Circle Cutter
Leaf Silicone Mold

I rolled out the white modeling chocolate (recipe below) and cut out circle's using a cookie cutter. I made little balls from the purple modeling chocolate (to be the grapes). My friend had a leaf silicone mold so I used that with the green modeling chocolate. Attach the grapes in a cluster and the leaves on top with a little water to your white circle (I used a fancy one but a simple circle would work also). Let these harden and then you can put on top of your frosted cupcake.

Wine Bottle Cupcakes

What you Need:
White Modeling Chocolate
Purple Modeling Chocolate
Wine Bottle Silicone Mold (Found mine on Amazon)
Black food Coloring
Vodka (it will evaporate but the black will stay)
Paint Brush

I used the purple modeling chocolate into the wine mold to form wine bottles. I put in the freezer to hard quickly and they come out easy that way. We then took some white modeling chocolate to make the labels on the wine bottles. My friend used a trick with small amount of vodka and then added some black food coloring to it. She dipped her paint brush into and wrote the 60 onto each label. Once dry the Vodka evaporates and the black is only left. We then put on the top of a frosted cupcake.

For those who haven't seen my post about Modeling Chocolate:

Modeling Chocolate
12oz Candy Melts
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).

Here is the cake and cupcake table:
