Cupcakes and Roses – Cupcake Toppers

I’ve been torturing myself with the mouth-watering scent of cupcakes this morning :)  I can’t eat them yet though – they have to be photographed first!  I made them for the launch of my final Cupcakes and Roses product; cupcake toppers…
These printable cupcake toppers come as a high resolution 300dpi file for you to print and make yourself.  The sheet measures 8.5 x 11 inches (approx. A4) and each circle is a little over 2 inches in diameter, so you can either hand cut them or use a 2 inch circle punch without leaving a white border.
The toppers are perfect for making cakes look pretty quickly.  They are really simple to make – just cut two circles and glue them together with a cocktail stick in the middle!  These circles could also be made into gift tags or used in scrapbooking and cardmaking.
I used a 2 inch scalloped circle punch for the topper in the photograph on strawberry flavoured cupcakes.  If you would like to try baking some yourself here’s the recipe…

6oz soft butter
6oz caster sugar
3 eggs
6oz self-raising flour
pink food colouring
1tsp strawberry flavouring
makes 11 cupcakes
Cream the butter and sugar.  Beat in the eggs then stir in the flour.  Add the strawberry flavouring and enough pink food colouring to make the colour you like.
Spoon into 11 cupcake cases and bake at 180°C for 20 minutes – until golden and when a skewer is inserted it comes out clean.
I decorated the cakes by piping buttercream with a star nozzle.  To make the icing cream 3oz soft butter with 6oz icing sugar and add pink food colouring.
The printable cupcake toppers are available to buy from my Etsy shop and Folksy shop.
