Cupcake Toppers

I was inspired when reading Kathy Jones' post on Copic Oz that I wanted to try my hand at making cupcake toppers for my eldest daughters birthday. Here is what I came up with:

And here's a photo with the candles lit:

I made rainbow swirl cupcakes - vanilla, pink and chocolate colours. For the icing I used white chocolate ganache - but added some red chocolate colouring powder - making it pink. I then dusted some pink rose petal dust over the icing. My daughter helped add little butterflies and pink sprinkles.

For the cupcake toppers I cut some card to 5 cm x 12" (sorry - I use both centimetres and inches for measuring - whichever one suits me at the time!) - for the large one (I had to join two pieces together) and the small ones are 2.5 cm x 12" (one piece each). I scored the large one using my Scor-Pal at every 1/2 inch. The small ones I scored at every 3/8 of an inch. Then folded and glued them together. It is best to make these in advance because they take a while to dry (although I suppose that depends on the glue that you use). For the sticks I just cut up some wooden kebab sticks to the sizes that I wanted and glued them on the back.
