Santa’s Hat Cupcake Tutorial!

santas-hat

Hope everyone is having a great Holiday Season. I just wanted to share this basic tutorial on Christmas Day with everyone. It’s a simple tutorial and they
are such cute cupcakes that I couldn’t resist. They remind me of a cake I made
years ago. Anyone can make this cupcake. It’s for beginners and even those who
want something pretty and fast.

Santa's Hat CupcakeI used cupcake wrappers I found in my craft store and they match perfectly to the theme of Christmas. You can also use your favorite buttercream. If you never done buttercream I have a few recipes posted in the website. Click here to go to the Buttercream Recipes.

For the topper I used Sugar Crystals. You can find those in the baking section of supermarkets or the baking aisle of your favorite craft store.

To make the red buttercream, I use chefmaster
Super Red liqui-gel color. It has great pigment!
I usually get that here…click here

For the snowflake you can use any small snowflake cutter but you can also use
a star or maybe some holly leaves. This is an idea that you can change and make
yours. Just have fun with it! I do love the plungers because I can move fast cutting with them, but some companies have copied the original plunger and they are not that good. So be careful when you buy the imitations. I might do another Blog about this so people are aware. I only trust the original company because I have tested the imitation plungers and they do not work the same.

Hope you guys enjoy this simple tutorial and had a wonderful Christmas Day.
Until next time, ta ta!!

Celebration Cupcakes- Tutorial

Celebration Cupcake=4th of July

Presione aqui para Español

I did this cupcake for the 4th of July and decided to film it while I was working
on it, (click here to watch the video). I love the design on this cupcake. I know many people will say, “that’s too much work for a cupcake”. Yeah, it has some work, and it would be a lot of work if you want to do all your cupcakes with the same design. The beauty about making cupcakes is that you can make them all in different designs. By doing some simple ones, your most complicated ones will shine and make a statement.
Roses, stripes and Stars cupcake. 4th of July CelebrationHere is the cupcake! I used the Strip Cutter to makes the stripes. An easy way to make perfect stripes fast.

Strip Cutter #1 2

I love JEM Cutters. They have a series of cutters that can be place in  a foam they created so you can cut your pieces upside down. I love using the cutters this way because you can make sure that the cut is clean.

Here to the right is the cutter I used. You  can click on the photo for more info on that tool.

JEM Roller foam

To the left is the Roller Foam. As you can see it works with a lot of the delicate cutters from this company.  Click on the photo for more info. I added to the cupcake some stars.  As many of you might already know, I love plunger cutters. I move fast when I used them and that’s important when making cakes.Gold highlighter

 

I painted the stars using my favorite gold highlighter.I did a few months ago a video that teaches how to use the Gold highlighter. You can click here to check the tutorial.

Miniature gumpaste rose.

I took this photo while I was doing the roses. Miniature roses are fun to make. But it’s important to be able to move fast when doing them. You really don’t want to spend hours making a little tiny flower. I have 2 ways of doing these roses and in the video I just used no cutters. I will do and advanced tutorial on these flowers for those who want to learn to make them.
