Pretty Strawberries & Cream Cupcakes

Little baby Lucia came to visit the other day, so what better way to celebrate than with these pretty strawberries and cream cupcakes (which, with Wimbledon approaching, is UK-summer in cupcake form).


Cake Topper Recipe:
Paper & Card: K&Company Sparkly Sweet, pink pearlescent, white textured
Tools: Silhouette Cameo
Embellishments: double satin ribbon 10mm, wooden toothpicks

I used my Silhouette Cameo to make these toppers, cutting the scallop circles and elephant ears in pink pearl card, the circle in white textured card, the elephant in glittered K & Company Sparkly Sweet designer card.  I cut twice the number required of scalloped circles so that I had a front and back.

To ensemble, first make the top layer, stick the ear onto the elephant with PVA glue then use small foam pads to elevate it off the white circle layer.  Use PVA glue to stick the white circle to a pink scallop circle.


Then, attach 3 large foam pads to the back of one of the scallop circles, remove the paper covers and smear each pad with a glue stick.  This means that the pads will have some manoeuvrability when you need to align the two scallop circles together.  Apply a generous blob of PVA glue and place in a toothpick.  Add your topper layer and fiddle to align properly.  Leave aside to dry fully (I left mine overnight).  Finally, tie a small amount of pretty satin ribbon at the top of the toothpick and trim.  

Ta Da – the prettiest little toppers that make any cupcake party-ready!  However, I recommend my delicious Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes - they are light and tasty, here's the recipe.
