Do you guys remember the geometric abstract cake I shared a few months ago, inspired by Marina Sousa’a Craftsy class?
Well, some people asked me how I made those diamond and circle pieces.
So, I did a tutorial to help you guys along…Enjoy! 🙂
To make these cupcakes, you will need the following supplies:
Black edible marker
Big and small circle cutters
These are the instructions:
Roll our yellow and black gumpaste.
Use a small circle cutter (or Wilton’s Tip#12) to cut out tiny black circular pieces.
Place them randomly on top of the yellow gumpaste.
Flatten the small black circles by rolling on top of them with a rolling pin.
Use a small circle cutter (or Wilton’s tip #366) to cut out some abstract circular pieces.
You can use various sizes of cutters or tips to cut out various sizes of circular pieces.
Your pieces should look like this…
Let’s make the diamond pieces now.
Roll out yellow gumpaste.
Use a big circle cutter to cut out some circular pieces.
Use your thumb and index finger to fold the circle, as shown in this picture.
Then, fold again like this…
Pinch the corners so that they stick together and the diamond hold its shape.
And you will end up with something that looks like this…
Roll out a small ball of black gumpaste and flatten it.
Then, stick it in the center of your diamond piece with some water.
Use a black edible marker to draw along the outlines of the diamond pieces.
Now, just arrange the circle and diamond pieces on your cupcakes.
And you are done!
Well, I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
Happy caking everyone!
