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.

Yummy Easter Cupcakes Recipe with Edible Toppers

What could be better for Easter then homemade Carrot Cake cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. To make them festive and seasonal, decorate with the YouCake Easter Toppers. Toppers are edible images that apply to any frosted cake, cookie or cupcake. Here is the before and after.

The fist step is to find a yummy recipe for carrot cake cupcakes and cream cheese frosting. I used this recipe from Real Simple magazine.  The only change I made was that I added some Bourbon soaked raisons and used a little less of the brown sugar.

The fun thing about carrot cake is that with all the carrots, topped with cream cheese, you can justify this cupcake as a breakfast treat :  )

Now to decorate…once you make cupcakes and cream cheese frosting, give each cupcake a squirt of frosting. Remove the toppers from their sealed bag. Remove the wax paper backing they come with and press them flat on the cupcake. Make sure your hands are dry when you handle the edible images.

Just make sure that the topper is flat. Then, if you like, add some sprinkles.

Let the toppers set for 30 minutes, then eat. The toppers are 100% edible – extra pretty and fun frosting. 

For those who like to prepare ahead. Cupcakes with the YouCake edible toppers freeze perfectly. De-thaw your frozen cupcake in the refrigerator. When de-thawing, remove the lid or cover of the container that they are being stored in to prevent any condensation that may drip onto the top of the cupcake.
