Decorate Your Cake and Cupcakes

I knew I wanted to make my daughter's birthday cake and cupcakes, but didn't know how to make gum paste/fondant/sugar decorations. I really like how cute all of these are, and the fact that they're edible too!


These little cupcake toppers from Artisan Cake Company are so adorable! They were so cute that I didn't want to use them....but what else would I do with a dozen fondant sea animals? LOL. Fondant usually tastes terrible, but these actually tasted pretty good...kind of like bubblegum. The combination of colors matched our theme perfectly too:
Elizabeth's most popular items have to be her Angry Birds figures, but she makes plenty of others too. She is truly talented and I'm sure she could make anything you'd like. Be sure to check out her shop, Artisan Cake Company.





I wasn't sure what kind of cake topper I wanted to use, but then I saw the "smash cake" options made by Natalia at Crumby Art. Her Finding Nemo and Little Mermaid designs really caught my eye, but I thought, no...stick to the theme! I received 1 6" cake topper and 12 cupcake toppers to review. They came in the sweetest colors and matched my banner design perfectly. The flat cupcake toppers certainly made them easier to eat!


Here's a little info about Natalia and her shop, Crumby Art:
     "My name is Natalia, and I have been in the Sugar Art business for almost 4 years. I have a background in art and illustration, and a love of playdoh, so all of that just kind of transferred over when I discovered fondant!  I am completely self taught, and am very blessed for the success I've had with Crumby Art. I work out of a small studio in Milwaukee, WI, where I also create one of a kind cakes for all occassions locally. I always tell my customers that anything is possible, because it is!
     I really enjoy and always welcome custom orders, but I'd have to say I enjoy orders for children the most. Maybe it's because I have 4 of my own (ages 2-8) and I think that helps me really understand what a parent is looking for to surprise their little one. All of my creations are completely edible, hand cut, hand painted, and hand molded. I do not use any stamps, transfers, or molds. I am also very excited to announce that at the end of this month I will be adding my own custom designed Cupcake Wrappers!"
