Mickey Mouse Birthday

This weekend we made Mickey Mouse cupcake toppers for Tyler’s 2nd birthday. I was told by Tyler’s mom Valerie that he loves to watch the Mickey Mouse club on the television so we decided to stay with that theme. I made four different types of toppers. All were placed on either a red or white backing that was fondant rolled onto a brick imprint to create a brick texture. The first topper was of Mickey, we made Mickey’s signature ears and his red shorts with two piped dots on them, the next was of Minnie, with her signature ears and bow. Then we had one of just Mickey’s ears with “Tyler” piped on top of them and the last was a blue star with the number two and white polka dots piped all around it.

Tim Burton Anniversary

These toppers were made for a 3 year anniversary. The couple is fans of Tim Burtons The Corpse Bride and Alice and Wonderland. So we based these toppers on both movies. We made 6 different toppers, 3 based on Alice and 3 based on Corpse Bride. The Alice toppers were, a gold stopwatch (the one the Rabbit had) and the time is stopped on their anniversary October 31st (10:31). Then there are the “drink, me” bottle and “eat me” cookies, the bottle tag has the initials of the couple on it. The third of the Alice toppers are the “this way, that way” signs, except we put the names of the couple on the signs. For The Corpse Bride toppers, the first is a spider web with the initials of the couple in red on top of it, then we have a glitter moon with purple butterflies flying across it and the last of the toppers is of a mans hand and a skeleton hand together over a silver glitter moon.

Rock and Roll

This week we shipped out custom toppers for a Rock and Roll Birthday Party for Kaelyn who is turning 5! Her parents Cris and Michael contacted me about making the toppers. They wanted pink, black and silver. Since it was a rock and roll theme we made, microphones, guitars, stars and records. We used some edible glitter for a finishing touch!

Lightening Bolt Love

Just shipped out my first order of custom cupcake toppers. They were for my friend Josie that wanted some custom toppers for when she went to visit friends. She wanted pink and purple hearts with lightening bolts. I made black textured bases and placed the colored hearts on top and then made silver lightening bolts and covered them in edible glitter for a finishing touch. Here are the pictures, the pink and purple did not show up well in the photograph but they are hot pink and a deep purple in reality.
