Molly's Fairy

Cupcake topper made for my little niece Molly who turned 5 today.

She had a fairy party and instead of a cake this year we went with a cupcake tower of teeny tiny mini cupcakes. The toadstool is made out of carved polystyrene and covered in fondant.

I had good intentions of making a start on my niece’s 5th birthday topper today. But after brunch out with some girlfriends and seeing Tracey’s post and then reading Glory’s cream cheese frosting recipe my day just ‘turned to custard’.

It’s the first time I’ve baked since a month away in Europe, I am sure my poor oven has forgotten my name! A work colleague is getting married in Feb and as I will be making her cupcake flowers, it was a good excuse to try out a few combinations. The brief is ivory and black..... Not an easy combination. On mass I think these will look quite stunning. I love the elegance of the black cases too.
