Spring Fondant Cupcake Toppers {tutorial}

I made these cupcake toppers for Courtney, over on her wonderful blog Sweet C’s Design.  Originally, I made them for Easter, but since there’s flowers and other spring-y things on it, I thought I’d post them here too.  They are super easy to make and the best thing about it is that you can make them months ahead of time.  (They will save if stored properly–more on that later.)

To make the toppers, you need the following items:

-fondant (I like the brand Satin Ice, because it actually tastes good—and stored properly, it will last 6+ months) Continue reading

Black and White Cupcakes

I hope you had a fantastic Easter.  I’m not one to get all caught up in the bunny and eggs, (to me, it’s about Jesus), but I couldn’t resist attending our church’s Easter egg hunt, especially now that Matthew is old enough to know a bit of what’s going on, you know, being all of 21 months.  It was a little bit of a hectic Saturday morning and it wasn’t until we got to the church parking lot that I realized we completely forgot to get some sort of basket for him.

Spring Flowers

I am trying to will spring to come.  Yes, yes, I know it’s officially here, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it.  There are streaks of sunlight, but it’s quickly gobbled up by ominous clouds and cold rain.  Making spring cookies was my way of letting Mother Nature know that it needs to warm up a bit.  My friend, Carri-Anne, wanted to learn how to make and decorate sugar cookies, so we make the cookies earlier in the week and decorated them on Saturday, while our husbands were supposed to watch Matthew.  He’s such a cute little boy, who wouldn’t want to watch him? lol  This bear came from his great-grandmother.  He looks like he’s ready for some cookies and tea.

This was the first time I decorated flowers, and overall, I like them.  I was trying to go for a Tiffany-blue, but I obviously need to work at mixing my colors.  It is certainly bright! Continue reading
