How to-video: Decorate Cupcakes with Edible toppers!
Squirt or spread and stick. No skill required, promise! 🙂
1. For standard size cupcakes we recommend ordering the 2-inch or 2 1/4 inch rounds edible toppers. All sizes are pre-cut. Select the size that works best for you.
2. Here is a link to a vanilla butter cream frosting recipe I used by the Kitchen Magpie, but any butter cream or even store bought frosting works perfectly. We recommend white frosting, works better with the frosting sheet and not to use a whipped cream frosting as these are too moist and dissolve the frosting paper.
3. Let the toppers set 30-60 minutes before serving. Timing depends on the temperature of the room and butter.
4. Another popular method, which I do in the summer with the heat, is to cut out fondant disks, paint with light coat of royal frosting, apply the topper on top and place on your frosted cupcake. There is more work, but on party day, it can be easier to pick up any frosted cupcake, frosting color no longer matters, and you will have the perfect cupcake. If you let the fondant toppers dry, you can stand them up.
And, I almost forgot, a topped cupcake freezes! When you defrost in the fridge, if you have plastic lid, remove this to prevent any condensation from dripping.
