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.


  1. Step 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. Step 2:

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

  3. Step 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. Step 4:

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