Royal Icing Cupcake Toppers

I mentioned in my last post about having to practice making some of the desserts I was making for Adelyn's Birthday party.

Well.... Another great idea I found on the site ~ I Am Mommy ~ were these royal icing cupcake toppers!! I searched everywhere trying to find something just right to use for my cupcakes and when I came across these I knew I had to try.

So I printed off a pic of what they were supposed to look like, the recipe on how to make royal icing and a bunch of sheets of the roses to pipe.

I taped the sheets with the roses to the counter and then taped a sheet of parchment paper over them.

Then I made the frosting according to the directions found on the Wilton website, separated it and then added a drop of pink to one bowl and a drop of green to the other. And when I say a drop I mean it! That's all it needed. Unless, of course, you want hot pink roses which I did not. :)

After that, I just filled my two bags and piped out the roses... :)

I just let them dry overnight and the next morning.... Wallah!!

Here's how they looked on the cupcakes the day of her party!! Can you see them in the center of the table?!? So cute!!

p.s. I can not say enough great things about the site ~ I Am Mommy ~ She doesn't know me and has never even heard of me. I am just telling you this because I just LOVE her site and all her creative desserts!! :))

p.p.s If you decide to attempt to make these just know that they are VERY fragile. Handle with care!! Luckily I made plenty because the afternoon of the party when I was putting out all the cupcakes and sticking them into them I was just breaking them one after the other and freaking out just a little bit.. :))
