First let me say congratulation to Sandra (socake) who won the Fairy theme Throw Down at the flickr Bake-off group. Sandra made a fantastic fairy who crashed in the frosting. Love it!
I made this little sweet fairy and yes she is very small just over 2″ high. I made her out of modelling paste and used a flower cutter to make the petal dress. I gave her a pair of wings by using a butterfly cutter from Patchwork cutters. I finished it off with green piped vines and some simple “rolled roses”.
You can see another photo of her in my cake gallery.
Hi Louise! Thank you so much for the tips. I’ll start practicing making these 😀 I’ll let you know how they turned out!
Gaby: that a tricky one… my guess would be make the “wings” out of black modelling paste. You could pipe the details on the wings with grey royal icing. Then for the body take some grey MP and start with a ball and then pinch out the “arms” add a small black circle and let it all dry
. Then assemble with edible glue or RI.
I think this is the best way to keep it simple.
Yessss I know it’s going to be super challenging for me, I’m so new with all this. I got a book on cupcakes and I’ve been reading it so I can learn the techniques and all, but still I can’t make up my mind on how to make the darn ships hahaha
I promise I’ll post a picture no matter how they end up looking 😀
Hopefully Louise can shed light on this 😉
When you finished with the Tie Fighter ships could you please post it? I am sure it is going to be very challenging.
Amazing as always!! You’re so talented you make it look really easy!
I have a BIG question for you. I don’t have a lot of experience making cupcakes, and my husband’s birthday is coming soon. Well, guess what he asked for? Star Wars cupcakes! He specifically asked for TIE FIGHTER ships on top of the cupcakes. My question is how can I make the space ships in the most simpler way? I guess the easiest would be to put a picture on top of the cupcake 😀 but I would like to at least try to make them edible 😀
Here’s a link to a Tie Fighter pic
Thank you so much for your advice and time!
Soo: I am planning to show this in a ebook.
I really love your little fairy. I just wander could you share with me the process that how you did the fairy.
Hong: Thank you for the nice words.
Adorable! The prettiest one I’ve ever seen. The pink, the green, the hair color are so harmonious and graceful. Like it very much.
This is really lovely!! I love the sensitive details 🙂
Ann, Beth Norman: Thank you both for the sweet and kind words about my work.
Lisa Mitchell: Yes thats fondant on the embossed cupcakes. I am not sure what kind of frosting you are talking about. Is it pipe able? or is it like the cupcakes here: https://cakejournal.com/flickr/album/72157600186762989/photo/1795212494/Cupcakes–Mini-Cakes-Rose-cupcakes.html
What type of frosting are you using on the cupcakes that are embossed? Fondant? Do you know how to make the very glossy very smooth kind that is in a lot of photos on the web? Lisa
Oh my gosh, this is fabulous. I’m a new subscriber. Your work is awesome.
This is just so precious. You are so talented I am envious.
Zareena: Welcome to CakeJournal 🙂 I hope that you will have fun here….
Kathryn: Thanks. You on the other hand should do a TD maybe with Lorraine??? 😉 All your work is as flawless as hers (wink).
This was so cute… people forget how tiny the modelling is! Brilliant :O)
Hi Louise. I’m Zareena from Penang, Malaysia. I luv to see your creations. They are simply wonderful and hope to see more of it.
LOL thank you all so much. It was really fun with a TD and I hope to do it again when summer is over.
Hugs to all of you!!
Louise this is just stunning! i wish i had such a great artist for my weddings!
It’s so lovely and beautiful, so delicate, it seems like a little doll. Congratulations, Hugs from Venezuela
iT LOOKS SO WONDERFULL…
That is the cutest cupcake ever!!!!
I love it, it is so cute. Congratulations
Bummer. Although the crashed fairy was clever, there was not as much artistry to it as there is with yours. You didn’t see her fairy…only her legs. I think yours was cuter.
My Sweet & Saucy
This turned out great! Love the petal dress and wings!
Wow, she’s so pretty!! I love looking at pictures of your creations, because they are so wonderful.
OMG she is beautiful! Congratulations
Wow Louise! Your fairy is so lovely! Bad luck for not winning the competition, but your fairy cupcake is surely one of the best!
