Ruby’s Cupcakes :)

2 Mar

A few weekends ago I helped put together a baby shower for my sister. If you know me, you know cupcakes were involved. 🙂 Since I would be traveling for the party, with a baby in tow, I needed something cute that I could make ahead of time.

Fondant cupcake toppers.
Bingo.

These actually were not hard to make at all. I rolled out some fondant and cut out white circles and teeny white hearts.

Then I tinted the extra fondant pink and cut out little onesies.
Adorable. As it turns out, Hobby Lobby and Michaels don’t carry a mini onesie cookie cutter. Had to order it online.

Attaching the two is as simple as brushing on a little water with a paintbrush and layering them. It turns out that “water” is another name for “fondant glue.” Pretty nifty.

If these were for anybody else, they would probably be done at this point. But, come on. These were for my sister. They needed an extra touch. So, I took out a fondant tool that looks like the tiniest pizza wheel you’ve ever seen….and gave the onesies some stitching. Much better.

The night before the shower my sister helped me make this ruffly cake. 🙂 Pretty.

The little lady should be making her appearance in about 2 1/2 months! Can’t wait to see how cute my newest niece will be!

Up next: probably a pinterest recipe I saw called brownie batter dip. Sounds like something I need to dip a pretzel into!

Less than 2 months until Abigail turns 1! What flavor should her cake be? Leave a comment to vote. 🙂
