Sunshine, cup cakes and rainbows… pretty, girly cup cake tutorial part 1.

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).

Rainbow cake-

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.

Stack them until they become a cloud formation (round the edge of the cloud first, then a few overlapping in the middle to give depth).


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.

Roll small balls of icing into cones (12 of each yellow and orange) flatten into triangles.

Stick all the orange triangles round the edge of the yellow circle, evenly spaced.

Stick the yellow circles around on top, in the spaces between the orange spikes.

Pipe two arcs in black for eyes, a white arc for teeth, then black lines around the ‘teeth’ to define the mouth.

Have fun!
