Do you want to know a little secret? This cupcake topper is quite possibly the easiest cupcake topper and it is so simple that it is almost embarrassing to post!
You only need 2 things-
- Roll the fondant out to about 1/4″ thickness and use your favorite cookie cutter to stamp out a shape.
- Insert a toothpick into each shape.
- Now comes the hard part (just kidding) you have to let them dry out. Let them dry on one side and then flip over and let them dry on the other side. I let them dry out for several days and will just flip them over whenever I’m thinking about it.
If you want the toppers to be really hard then either make them out of gum paste or a combination of fondant and gum paste. I find it much easier to roll out the fondant than I do rolling out gum past so my preference is a combination of them!
This is my favorite fondant and gum paste. I LOVE the taste of this fondant and it is very easy to work with. I always have several colors in my pantry!
Kids love that the toppers are editable and if you’ve used fondant or the fondant/gum paste combination they taste better than the pure gum paste. Just remember the more fondant the softer and the more gum paste the harder the toppers will be.
See how simple that was? You can get super creative or just keep it simple like I did here! Try it out and let me know how your’s turned out.
