My cake projects

If you go down to the woods today… tutorial for cute cupcakes with teddies and bugs. Part 1

Kids cakes

Simple, pretty ideas great for kids birthdays or parties.  These could also be cute little wedding cupcakes if you make them in colours to match your scheme.

Part 1, Teddies

What you need- Tools: Round modelling tool, straight modelling tool, number 1.5 -2 piping nozzle.

Materials: Teddy colour sugar paste (whatever you like!), small amount of pink/peach sugar paste, black royal icing or sugar paste, sugar paste in your chosen colour for base (I’ve used green).

Ice the cupcake with teddy colour.

Mark it’s eyes with the rounded tool.

Roll 2 small balls of icing in Teddy colour. Press them on to the cake on the outer edge and use the ball tool to mark the centres (this will also help them stick to the cake).

(Optional: if you’d like coloured centres to the ears add another, smaller ball to the hole in the centre then mark again with the ball tool).

Make an oval ball (about the size of both ears combined), flatten it and place it in the centre of his face.  Mark his muzzle with your straight modelling tool using a vertical line.

Pipe eyes (or roll tiny balls of black sugar paste

 dropped in the holes) roll a ball or triangle for the nose, whichever you prefer (or pipe on the nose in royal icing).

Roll a ball of pink sugar paste and flatten it to make a tongue.  Stick just below the muzzle. Mark a vertical line down the tongue.

Lying teddy

Ice the cake with your chosen colour (I’ve picked green to look like grass). Roll a medium sized ball of teddy coloured sugar paste and shape it narrower at one end like a pear.

Roll a small narrow sausage of teddy colour, flatten it into a hand at one end and bend it into an elbow in the middle.

Make 2.

Roll 2 sausages for legs, flatten one end into a foot.

Add feet and hands.

Roll a ball for the tail and a pear shape for the head.

Roll 2 tiny balls for the ears. Use ball tool to mark middles. Pipe on dots for eyes and nose.

(optional, pipe 5 coloured dots in a circle for flowers, with white dots for centres).

Have fun!

Coming soon, part 2. Sitting and lounging teddies.
