Pretty girly cup cakes. Perfect for princess parties, girly hen parties or just to brighten up a rubbish day!
You will need:
Tools- Circle cutter (to cover cake), modelling tool. Sharp knife, 2x no1.5-2 piping nozzles and 2 piping bags (ideally small, greaseproof paper ones) Small, clean paintbrush.
Materials- Sugar paste in rainbow colours and white. Black and white royal icing.
Begin by covering all of your cup cakes in your chosen colour (tutorial coming soon about quick coverings for cupcakes).
Roll out a thin ‘sausage’ of sugar paste in each rainbow colour
Lay the ‘sausages’ closely together in rainbow order.
Cut the right side straight. Lay the rainbow across the cake in a curve (lightly dampen the area you’re lying it on with a damp paintbrush if it does not stick well). Trim off the excess at the other side, following the curve of the cake.
Make small balls of white sugar paste (less than pinky nail sized) and stick the at the end of the rainbow.
Roll a medium ball of yellow sugar paste. Flatten into a circle (or roll flat with a rolling pin and cut a circle with a cutter 1/2 the diameter of your cupcake). Stick to the centre of your cake.
