Valentines Toppers

10th February 2017

Silicone moulds are a useful tool for creating detailed designs to decorate all your cake creations! With Valentines Day just around the corner; this Love Heart mould from Kitchen Craft  included in the “You’re a Gem” cake bag is perfect to make beautifully decorated cakes. It has a gorgeous imprinted Rococo lace design perfect to add lustre dust to really bring out the detail!

I’m going to show you how easy this mould is to use to make beautiful cupcake toppers perfect to give to your loved ones this Valentines Day.

Colour some sugar modelling paste with red food gel colour (I used Renshaw flower modelling paste) and roll into a ball

Place the ball in the centre of the heart mould and push out from the centre until you completely cover the design

Flex the mould to loosen the modelling paste and peel it away until fully removed from the mould

You can leave the heart plain like this or mix some lustre dust with clear alcohol and paint over the design (I used SugarFlair lustre dust in royal gold)

Leave to dry whilst your top your cupcakes with swirls of buttercream then simply place the hearts on top!

I also used a mixture of love heart, white and red sprinkles to decorate the edges of my cupcakes!

These moulds would also be perfect to create decorations for placing hearts on top of a large cake or creating beautifully decorated sugar cookies!
