How To Decorate Flamingo Cupcakes

One of our favourite things at Baking Mad is getting creative with our cupcake decorating. With a bit of food colouring and fondant icing you can let your imagination go wild. Here is a quick guide to making these funky flamingo cake toppers.

Method

  1. Ice your cupcake with pink buttercream icing. We created this by mixing some raspberry jam with vanilla buttercream to give it a burst of berry flavor.

  2. Next take a small ball of pink fondant icing and roll into a thick small sausage shape.

  3. Arch the top of the fondant into a curve to form the neck of the flamingo and roll a small amount of black fondant to wrap round the end to create the beak. Add a touch of white icing to the beak and a small ball of black for an eye. Insert a cocktail stick into the pink fondant to support the neck.

  4. Insert the flamingo into the cupcake and for an extra flourish we attached feathers to the back of the cupcake case for wings.
