Finding time to make fondant cupcake toppers seems to be a dying trade for me. Work is super busy and requires a lot of extra drive-time for me, which means I get home later and later… I’m running consistently again since my half marathon in April, which means not only do I fight evening hours to make toppers, but also Saturday baking mornings when I need a long run… I love my family and friends, so I want to hang out with them as much as possible too…
BUT I love making fondant toppers! I finally have a weekly creative “art” project, which I’ve been secretly longing for years. Making toppers is the challenge I need, BUT I just need to reasonably make sure I have enough time in the week to get them done.
Designing little animals takes time, but is one of my favorite fondant projects. Check out these animals from Xavier’s 1st birthday a few weekends ago!
Pandas and Giraffes in the making!
Alexis wanted basic flavor combos for Xavier’s party - chocolate/chocolate, chocolate/vanilla, and vanilla/vanilla with little pandas, giraffes, and #1s. She also needed a little 6” cake for Xavier!
I LOVE THESE GIRAFFES! I get to make them again this week! The Pandas are a nice added animal to my fondant art. Don’t you love his face?
And, get ready for BIG PANDA!
So sweet! The Wyatts had the most beautiful afternoon for an outdoor 1st birthday party for Xavier… a gorgeous North Carolina blue sky day without it being 100 degrees.
Look at this adorable baby! He is seriously one of the cutest kids I’ve ever seen in my entire life.
Alexis thought that his cake was too pretty to SMASH, so Xavier got a Panda cupcake for destruction instead.
Don’t you just want to smooch those cheeks? Thank you Alexis for sending me the pictures of Xavier, supporting my crazy cupcake empire, and inviting us to be a part of your family’s special day.
Happy Happy Birthday to Xavier!
