How to Make Baby Carriage Cupcake Toppers

Here’s what you’ll need:

Fondant in the colors for your design (I only used pink and white)
Small rolling pin
Sugar glue and small paint brush
Round cookie cutters  (I used a 2″ cutter, 3/4″ cutter and a very tiny cutter less than 1/2″)
Square cookie cutter (2″)
Small flower cutter (I used a punch with mold)
Frill cutter
Small knife and/or pastry wheel

Step 1:

Start by rolling out the pink fondant (or the main color) and cutting out 2″ circles.

Step 4:

Cut tiny sections (I cut mine about 1″ long) to put along the top of the carriage.  I cut the 3 little “bumps” then squished them close together and glued to the carriage.
