With a little work and a whole lot of sugarpaste, you can make a cupcake topper fit for a queen, or a bride to be, in this case. All that you need is a little creativity, some sugarpaste in a variety of colors (but mostly in pink, white and brown) and some vodka or edible glue to hold the layer together. By rolling the sugarpaste into balls and flattening them, you can create the effect of a stacked layer cake. Place on top of a cupcake – any flavor – and your guests will thank you!

Corn on the Cobb cupcakes are a whimsical treat for your next barbeque or any party or buffet you are planning. The yellow cake and frosting give a hint of the “cobb” but the corn kernels take the cake in their sweetness; literally and figuratively. The corn kernels are candies such as yellow, white, and cream colored small jelly beans arranged in perfect little rows and complemented with a Starburst “pat of butter”.

The fun part comes in in the decorating with M&M’s, Twizzlers, Tootsie Rolls, and the like. Kids of all ages enjoy this treat.
