Cupcake toppers

Happy Presidents Day weekend to you!

I have been working lately on my cupcakes and the decorations that adorn them. I thought about making confetti out of fondant.  Time consuming is the first thing that came to my mind.  But as always I think that the extra effort pays off.  And to be honest, I don't put a lot on a cupcake so a little confetti goes a long way.  

I will be taking cupcakes to a few wedding showers soon.  I saw these glittery hearts on pinterest and so made a few.  

These would also work for a shower
Got a little crazy with the confetti.  I returned to office max after buying the regular hole punch to get the heart version. The tiny ones are from that, whereas the larger ones were cut with a fondant cutter (mini cookie cutter).

And my washi tape obsession continues

No offering of cupcakes is complete without a good cookies and cream frosting atop it.

And I added this one to show that presentation can be as simple as a little lemon zest

I believe that presentation matters which is why I put effort into that aspect of my cupcakes.  

I hope you all are enjoying this long weekend.  So nice to have 3 days to play!!
