    Add Animal Print Liners!

    Show off your wild side by adding animal print. This particular celebration was for a 2 year old but animal print is so versatile it can be used for so many different celebrations. When being set up on the tier one row had a fun zebra print liner while the others had a solid hot pink to bring out the design elements of the topper cake.  Each cupcake also had a round disk with the birthday girl’s age to add more color and bring the theme together.

    Fondant Covered Cupcakes

    Example: Baby Face Cupcakes

    Baby shower cupcakes

    Celebrating this baby boy’s arrival, these cupcakes were covered in fondant with a baby blue cap and pacifier with rosy cheeks! While these cupcakes were created for a baby boy, switch up the colors and the cupcakes are transformed to adorable baby girl faces.

    We certainly weren’t the first to design cupcakes this way, but we love the endless possibilities that a thin layer of fondant with a few embellishments can provide. Whether it’s a baby girl, personalized bride and groom or a recent graduate, there are several ways to make these cupcakes your own!
