Valentines Week - Simple Cupcake Toppers


A quick way to dress up some simple cupcakes is with some quick cupcake toppers.  The best part about these cupcakes is that the toppers can be customised to suit any occasion.  These are so quick and easy to make and are a great way to try working with fondant if you haven’t ever done it before.

First choose your favourite cupcakes and whip up a batch.  I used my favourite recipe for rose water cupcakes that I shared once before here.  I love that these taste like musk but if you aren’t a fan of musk the rosewater can be swapped out for violet water or orange blossom.  You will need 18 cupcakes iced in buttercream,.  You will also need white fondant, pink fondant, a small heart cutter, a small scalloped cutter and letter embossers.

1 - Roll your white fondant out to about 1/8 of an inch thick and cut out 18 scalloped rounds.  Set these aside on a plate covered in paper towel. 
2 – Roll out your pink fondant to 1/8 inch thick.  Emboss your letters on at a time then using your heart cutter a heart shape with the letter in the centre.
3 – Use a small paintbrush to brush a little water into the centre of your first white round.  Place a heart shape on top.  The water will help the fondant pieces to stick together.  Repeat with the remainder of your hearts.
4 – Place each heart on top of a cupcake and arrange your cupcakes to spell out a message.

Now present them to your better half for Valentine’s Day or leave them as a surprise for your crush with a note from their secret admirer.  These cupcakes are sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face this Valentine’s Day.
