  1. Ruby: The link is to some very large tips. Not sure if they are bigger than the wilton ones?
    I love that the IMBC is quite soft for piping.

    Debbie: Yes, there will be instructions for the cupcake paper toppers very soon.

  2. I love to bake and would love to know how to make the cup cake toppers.Do you think you would be able to put up instructions on them? You are so creative and love your site. Thanks

  3. Hi Louise – thank you for your reply and tutorials. I didn’t know they were on your website.

    I live in Canada so not sure what type of tip your link is?

    I buy Wilton tips (as that’s pretty much all we have). I have the 1M, 2D, etc. I think I need practice, though hand pain doesn’t allow me to practice all that much. I do enjoy making good quality cupcakes and especially italian meringue buttercreams.

    Love your blog (and I appreciate that you take the time to respond to everyone’s comments). Thank you 🙂

  4. Edith: Thank you, I now and then get such awards, but I have decided not to go along with them. I need to concentrate on the cake blogging.
    But thanks anyway, sweety!

  5. They look cute and yuMmy… I would love to try and make some of my own but I don’t know if I got the skills that you do. =)

  6. How do you get that perfect swirl?? I’ve been practicing for months! Could you tell me what tip you’re using? They are beautiful!

  7. Just a little information about the toppers. They are very easy to do: paper punches, wooden cookie sticks, embellishment, craft glue/hot glue gun and ribbon. Yes there will be a tutorial on those 🙂

    For those of you who live in scandinavia I can tell that the cupcake cut outs are from Panduro Hobby.

  8. Hi Louise,

    Your cakes and recipes are absolutely amazing. Its one thing to have such a passion for cake baking and decorating and another thing to actually share it with everyone else. It is really amazing. The photos you post are so nice. I almost always drool when visiting your website. Hats off to you and your tutorials.

  9. Those cupcake toppers are perfect for my daughter’s 2nd birthday! The theme is Michelle’s Sundae Best! I love it! Thanks for sharing! :o)

  10. These are so adorable, I love the fact that more cute and elegant items for cake/cupcake decorating are coming out.

  11. Very cute idea, I never thought about making my own. I’ll have to take a look in the scrapbooking isle for more ideas.
    I just happened upon your site about 3 months ago, and find it very informative. We should form a networking group to give each other ideas.

  12. I love the papper topper even if i dont win that because im from Portugal and send that is very expensive off course, could you please explain how you do all that cuts in papper? Is on the store or you have some papper cutters?

  13. They are lovely, and also fantastic if you have small children who like to help decorate the cupcakes but still luck the skills! Or if you are in a hurry but want to present something classy!

    Love them!

  14. SO Gorgeous!!! That is a brilliant idea, cheap and great for those who are not into eating sugar decorations =D

  15. I am from Australia and love seeing what you are doing each week. You always have such great ideas and give me such inspiration 🙂

  16. Hej Louise. De er helt fantastiske! Hvilken butik har du fundet det i? Hvis jeg ikke vinder, kan jeg jo drøne forbi selv og klistre det sammen.

  43. Honestly Louise, I would love to connect your mind to PowerPoint, and then just hit PLAY! I also appreciate your packaging ideas. I am always looking around for something innovative and unusual for church bake sales.
    On a final note, you have mentioned “wonder” papers in the past … that they are slightly higher than the normal sized liner, but I just cannot seem to find them anywhere.
    Do you have manufacturer’s name you could share? (I live in the U.S.) Any information would be so very much appreciated.
