Lovely Princess Cupcakes

Hi there,

How are you doing?

One month ago I said goodbye to my last traditional oven and currently I have a new one. It’s a fan assisted one. I find it a bit tricky to use, but I guess it’s a matter of time to get used to it!

Yesterday I was experimenting with it. When the cupcakes came out from the oven, I quickly decided what their decoration would be: cute princesses wearing their elegant dresses!

To make the dresses, I piped a generous dollop of thick consistency buttercream on top of each cupcake. I put some coloured sugar into a wide bowl and I rolled in the cupcakes to give the dress a special texture. Buttecream gives the domed shape of the dress and works as a glue to stick the sugar.


How To Make Coloured Sugar

Put some granulated sugar into a resealable bag. Add some food colouring by means of a toothpick. Shake and rub for a while until getting an even colour. This sugar can be easily preserved inside the same resealable bag for several weeks.


I made the paper toppers by cutting some princess pictures and sticking them onto a toothpick. I used the images from this link:

Finally, I inserted the toppers into the cupcakes . In addition, I also added some beautiful cupcake wrappers.

I hope you find them nice and easy to make and you give them a try to sweeten a little girl’s birthday party, for example ;)

When I was a child my favourite one was the Sleeping Beauty. Which one was yours?

Have a nice weekend,
