PINNED Valentine Cupcake Toppers

 So we were on the hunt for some quick valentines cupcake toppers to make with some left over fondant, as well as the Satin Ice samples we got from ICES.  Melanie fell in love with some love letters she found on  We found that this tutorial had more than just love letters so we decided to pinnnn it and bring our versions to you.

We had fun really just playing around and creating these cute toppers for our Valentines cupcakes.  They were very quick and it was surprising how much a ball of fondant bound for the garbage could spark your creativity… Check out our creations below.
 Stay tuned for a look at these puppies on our Valentines cupcakes.

On January 25th, we went on a day trip to Orlando for another amazing isomalt opportunity. There was a class being taught by none other than Sidney and Michelle from Simi Cakes and Confections (which we love!) at the FL ICES Mini Classes event. This class was focused on blowing isomalt into pumpkin carriages. We also went to D and G Occassions beforehand as we got to Orlando super early, and forgot an important item that we needed to bring to the class. Check out the video below and see what we bought there and what else we did while in Orlando.
