Tuesday Trend – Fondant Cupcake Toppers

Have you used fondant in your cake or cupcake decorating yet?  If not, why not?

About three years ago, I tried my hand at decorating with fondant and made a pretty fabulous (if I do say so myself) Princess Birthday cake for my daughter. (Ok, just the bodice of her dress was made with fondant, but I am still proud).

Since that time, the use of fondant and edibles for CUPCAKE toppers has grown like crazy, and this year, I plan do try again, BUT making individual princess toppers for cupcakes!

You know I found a few tutorials, right?  AND some super fab fondant artists from whom you can purchase fondant cake toppers, if you aren’t brave enough to try your own!

First off – let’s start you off with a super-easy, incredibly delicious marshmallow fondant recipe (or you can purchase fondant from a bakery or the baking aisle of a craft store).  Learning how to make cake fondant (or cupcake fondant) is fun and a money saver!

 

From Glorious Treats, a fondant tutorial, to help you get started!

From Crave. Indulge. Satisfy, one of THE best tutorials I found… how to make owl fondant cupcake toppers:

From The Crafty Penguin, a fun tutorial on ladybug cupcakes:

From Cake Journal, how to make embossed teddy bear fondant cupcake toppers (GORGEOUS!):


And remember when I said I was hoping to make some Princess cupcake toppers for my daughter’s birthday?  Well… I may just BUY them instead.  Check THESE out, from Edible Details:

And these from Parker’s Flour Patch, some rose and princess-theme toppers:

Cute, cute, CUTE!!
