Make Mother’s Day Cupcake Toppers – Hydrangea and Bunch of Flowers

For those still seeking inspiration for Mother’s Day, we’ve already shown you how to make wonderful Letter mould and Rose Bud toppers, and Carnation and Ruffle flower designs in our previous blog posts. Here, Sally Riches from Sally Jane Cake Designs shows us how to make Hydrangea and a Bunch of Flowers cupcake topper to complete the series. Happy baking!

Equipment
Sugarpaste, flower paste, flower cutter sets, white shimmer pearl lustre, Trex, CMC/Tylo powder, blossom plunge cutters, flower drying pad (optional)

Bunch of Flowers

Add some CMC to your coloured sugarpaste. I used green for the stalks; roll very thin sausages & cut to size. Roll a longer thin sausage for the part that wraps around & tie if you can.

To create the flowers I chose 2 colours; roll your sugarpaste thinly & cut using both your small & medium blossom plunge cutters. These were some of the first ‘cake decorating supplies’ I bought & I still use them all the time! Once pressed out these are so small they should hold their shaped.

Create the flat base as before and leave to dry.

Hydrangea Flowers

I used Blossom Sugar Art’s Hydrangea cutter & mould set for these. I also have the Petunia and Blossom sets, which are equally as nice.

Using flower paste, cut and place in the mould (lightly greased with Trex) and leave to dry in a flower drying pad if you have one (an egg box works just as well!).

I added a white shimmer pearl to the centre of each of these as they were drying.

Create the flat base as before and leave to dry. Assemble with a little edible glue.

Step Hydrangea

By now you should have a complete set of beautiful Mother’s Day cupcake toppers! If you had a go, share your pictures with us on Facebook or Twitter – we always love to see what you’ve created.
