Princess Poppy Troll Cupcake Cake

This is how I made my Princess Poppy Troll cupcake cake made with 25 cupcakes pieced together in the shape of Princess Poppy Troll.  

Things you will need:
25 standard sized cupcakes
1 rectangle cake board
100 grams light royal blue fondant
100 grams light green fondant
25 grams white fondant
10 grams black fondant
20 grams pink fondant
2 disposable icing bag each fitted with Wilton 1M icing tips
2 cups pink buttercream
3 cups pinkish purple buttercream
pink edible glitter (optional for cheek blush)
1/4 cups royal icing
Americolour Electric Pink soft gel paste ( Princess Poppy's Face)
Americolour Violet soft gel paste ( Princess Poppy's Hair)

Tinting the buttercreams:

To tint the buttercream for Princess Poppy's face I added 4 drops of Americolor Electric Pink and 1 drop of Americolor voilet to 2 cups buttercream. Add more  drops violet soft gel paste to the buttercream until you get the colour that you wanted.   For Princess Poppy's Hair I added 4 drops of Americolor electric pink and 2 drops of Americolor Violet to 3 cups of buttercream.  Add more violet soft gel paste to hair buttercream until you get the colour that you wanted.  Transfer each buttercream to two different disposable icing bags fitted with Wilton 1M icing tips. set aside

Mapping out the cupcakes and piecing them to together:

Set the cupcakes in place with royal icing.  Apply royal icing at the bottom of cupcakes.
Icing the cupcakes:
Take your prepared pink buttercream piping bag and with it outline Princess Poppy's face.  (See diagram below).

Cover gaps between cupcakes in order to create smoother lines.
Notice how I did not follow the natural shape of the cupcake.  I filled in the gaps between two cupcakes hence creating smoother lines.

Which brings us to the next step fill in the outline area with pink buttercream.

Minion Cupcake Cake

This is how I made my Ube (purple yam) Minion cupcake..  Enjoy! Come see how I made it in this youtube video.  Don't forget to subscribe for more updates! Used Wilton tip 1M to create the rose pattern on the cupcake.  Start pipping from middle cupcake and out. To create the eyes...  You will need 3 different sizes of round cookie cutter (3", 2.5, 1 inches, white fondant, grey fondant (goggle frame), light brown fondant (iris), and black fondant, large ball tool, and piping gel.  Cut out a 3" circle out of grey and white fondant.  Set aside in large ziplock bag.  Cut out a 2.5" circle in the middle of the grey circle.  This will be the frames for the minions goggles. With a small brush apply a small amount of water along the perimeter of the white circle.  Lay down the grey frames on top of the white circle.  Using a ball tool (See pic bellow) make an indent on the bottom centre of the white circle.  Place the brown 1" circle in the di

3 Dimensional Elmo Cake

I made this Elmo cake for my cousin's daughter, Jayla who turned 3 a few weeks ago for her Sesame Street Themed birthday party.  The cake was a marble chiffon cake crumb coated and filled with chocolate buttercream.  For Elmo's fur I used Wilton's "grass tip" to pipe out red vanilla buttercream.  Elmo's eyes and nose are made with fondant which I secured using toothpicks. Used Wilton Doll Cake Mould for the body. Sports ball cake pan for Elmo's head. Inserted straw for structure support. Filled each layer with chocolate buttercream. Normally I trim the tops of cake to create an even surface here I kept the dome and turned it into Elmo's slightly open mouth.  Make sure the top half of the circle is smaller than the bottom half.   Important note:  Elmo's unique qualities are his big wide upward smile, his football shaped head, and the top half of his head is smaller than the bottom.  Its hard to achieve
