Ideas for Fairy Themed Cupcakes (fondant fairs out)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My DD 6th bday is coming up and she's having a fairy theme. I'm doing cupcakes, but I don't have the time to do fondant fairies on top. What can I do to make them fairy-ish? How would I do wings? How would I do wands? Any other ideas? Fairy dust?

[color="green"]I'm thinking maybe some of that pealerscent powder to give it a nice fiary-look I guess. Also I saw a post here a little while ago about making butteflies with gelatin I think it is. Maybe u can use that to make wings. just a thought and a bump. icon_wink.gif [/green]

I use my heart shaped cutter to make wings... I cut the hearts, leave them to harden and then insert the hearts into the top of the cupcakes...

How about making little fairy wands? Just cut out yellow stars and insert a spaghetti stick...

Maybe also pipe some swirls on a few cupcakes and dust with edible glitter or lustre dust?

i bought a really cute princess cutter set at williams sonoma a couple of months ago. it's in what looks like a book, but it opens up and has cutters that resemble a fairy wand, a prince and princess, a carriage, a tiara, and a shoe...maybe a couple of others. you could some of those to do some really cute cookies, flood with royal, and then put luster dust or sprinkles on them.
the early bird may get the worm, indeed, but the second mouse is the one who gets the cheese!

Goodness unlimited here. You could do mini RI crowns, you could roll out gumpaste and use a butterfly cutter, cut them place them on wax paper, and tape them inside a shoe box so that half the wing is taped to the bottom of the box and the other wing is taped up the side. THat way when it dries it looks like a butter fly in flight when put on the cupcakes. Decorate butterfly's as desired. ANyway some ideas, the other are great too! LadyBUg
