Anyone make these at all? I make the usual cherry or currant buns but need some ideas for really girly pretty toppings to make some lovely cupcakes for a party, anyone any ideas??
make buttercream icing in a pretty colour, pipe it on top of the cakes, add silver balls / edible glitter / other decorations...voila!
our sainsburies sell disney princess toppers that are v cute!
Thank you Hope buttercream is easy to pipe, not had my piping bag out for years!!!
yes it is easy - just follow the recipe mix on the icing sugar packet to get the right consistency - I can make fairy cakes look fab this way and I am a real klutz in culinary arts Let me know how it goes!
Quick hi-jack of your thread: blossom Can anyone tell me, if I do fairy cakes with buttercream icing, how long will they keep?I need them for Saturday, do I have to cook on Friday?TIA
Well I made mine on Friday, iced them on Saturday and just ate the last ones today - they were fine! I kept them in an airtight container.
Check out this thread for some yummy toppings.Look in Waitrose for the extra yummy chocolate sprinkles (made by Paynes?? I think). Ditto for crystalised violets and rose petals.
ChampagneSN, I had to make 55 for my stepson's wedding cake - they kept much better in foil cases (cheap at Lakeland) than the usual paper ones.
