Some of you may already know this, but every now and then my friend, Cheryl from Sew Can Do, and I like to switch things up a bit and swap posts. Cheryl is all fabric, I’m all sugar. But sometimes we even like to switch that up a bit, too (though I take baby steps into her world, since needle and thread aren’t my friends like they are hers. Seriously, just check out her etsy shop and the crazy cuteness.)
When I spotted these sculptable frosting figures she created, I knew I had to try my own (look for future posts with that experimenting). And these also inspired my casual dabbling with fabric, which I shared with you on Tuesday. Wouldn’t these toppers be so perfect for those cupcakes? So now, I’m handing things over to Cheryl of Sew Can Do!!
SCULPTABLE FROSTING BY CHERYL OF SEW CAN DO
Roll out a bit of pink frosting 1/4 inch thick and cut with a flower cutter and then flatten slightly with the rolling pin to make the shape more uneven and drape over the top of the cake piece to “frost” it.
And if you really want to get whimsical, how about a little garden gnome?
Use knife to make a triangle with the red that is slightly wider at the bottom than the pink circle. Use the cutter to round out the bottom to make the hat shape:
Place hat over top of circle and curve to fit. Cut flower from white to create a beard and place over lower half of face:
Use end of paintbrush to make eye holes and then fill with small dots or blue. Create a mouth with paintbrush in same way and fill with a small strip of red for a nice smile.
Add creations to decorate cakes, cupcakes, brownies or use as stand alone sweets. The possibilities are endless and incredibly tasty. Hope you enjoy them! Thanks for letting me stop by Meaghan!
Thanks for visiting, Cheryl! And a REMINDER to ALL: This is a guest post by Cheryl of Sew Can Do. I did not create this super cool sculptable frosting. Rather than leave your questions in the comments here, your best bet to get any questions answered is to visit Cheryl at Sew Can Do.
Hi Makita, I don’t know what that is. But if you contact Cheryl of Sew Can Do, who created this frosting, she may know! Just head to her blog. Her contct info is there. Thanks! meaghan
Does anyone know if this will turn out if I use a hand mixer or if I stir it by hand with a spoon/spatula? As a poor college student, I can’t afford a standing mixer 🙁 and I don’t wanna waste money on ingredients haha!
Hi Brooke, I don’t know from experience with this one (it’s a guest post) but hand mixers are usually just fine as a sub for a standing mixer! 🙂
