Friday FREE Printables – Jungle Theme

We talked about Jungle Parties and Showers earlier this week, so I decided to make this week’s FREE leopard printables!

I designed a leopard print tag/cupcake topper and a treat bag topper that fits on a sandwich bag!

The tags are 2 inches round, and come 20 to a sheet.  The download is in a PDF format file.  Just download, print, and then cut.  (We recommend a circle punch, like THIS ONE, but scissors work too!  Punches are low cost and once you have one you’ll find zillions of reasons to use it).  You can punch a hole and add tags to your a gift or favors with string or ribbon.  If you decide to print them on STICKER paper, these will make great seals for party favors.

The treat bag toppers are 6.75 x 6 inches, and they are designed for easy use.  Simply print, cut out, and fold over.  Then staple to the top of your sandwich bag of goodies, and you have a great party favor!  You can write your own message on these, so they are perfect for any kind of party or shower!

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!!
