How to get this effect?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey all,

 

I love the cupcakes in this picture

and am wondering, what exactly are the blue disks/decorations made of? Gumpaste? Fondant?

Also, any idea what gel color to use to get that shade of hot pink in my buttercream?

Thanks for your suggestions!

Americolor electric pink.

Some are fondant & some (like butterfly) may be combo or gumpaste.

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!
