Show of hands: Who eats cupcake toppers, and who leaves them on the side of their plate?
Okay, so I can't really see your hands, but I'd guess that there are a few in each camp. I'm a non-topper-eater. But I love what they look like on a cupcake, and I really love making them. And delicate little flowers are amongst my favourite. They are so simple to make and oh so pretty.
Here's an example:
Blossom cut out of tylose paste
using an embossing plunger-cutter - a really simple design
Put the blossoms in egg trays to dry.
Use tylose glue to secure the centre in the flower
Ready to be used
when completely dry (a couple of hours / a day depending on how humid it is).
Pretty simple, and simply pretty : )
