Tuesday toppers- present

Well i've been feeling a bit under the weather the past few days (well, more like someone took me out behind the ally and beat the snot out of me really, lol) so i haven't been able to post, but today i'm starting out with my first installment of a new series called tuesday toppers, where every tuesday I will show you the step-by-step on how to create a new cupcake topper.

This weeks topper is a cute little present.



Here's what you'll need to make it:


-rolling pin
-fondant smoother
-pizza cutter or knife
-white fondant
-mauve fondant (country blue in picture)
-paint brush and water (not pictured)



-Using rolling pin, roll out about a 1" ball of fondat very thin.
-With fondant smoother as guide cut 5 strips approx. 3" long by 1/8" wide. Cut one in half.



-With a ball approx. 1" in diameter, take fondant smoother and start boxing the ball by slightly flattening all sides until it resembles a cube.



-Using index finger and thumb, pinch all edges.
-With fondant smoother square up cube again.
-You should now have a nice cube shaped present.



-For ribbon, put longer stip down first using a small amount of water to attatch
-Next use half strip on either side to finish off ribbon.





-For the bow you need three of the strips about 3" in lenth.
-Make three loops out of each strip, adding a little water at the base of each loop to stick them together.
-Pinch bottom of loops together slightly to hold them together.



-take the three loops and stack them together.
-pinch bottom of all three together, being careful not to squish loops.
- Attatch bow to top of present with a touch of water.

You are now ready to top your cupcake :)
