Pokémon Go is still an extremely popular mobile game with Pokémon fans of all ages. The game allows you to locate, capture, and battle virtual creatures, called Pokémon. They appear on the screen as though they are in the same real-world location as the player. In the game, the player throws “Poke Balls” at the creatures to capture them.
This tutorial gives step-by-step instructions on how to make these iconic Poké Balls into cupcake toppers!
This is what I used:
- Work surface
- Corn starch
- Rolling pin
- Rolling cutter
- Fondant in white, red, and black
- Large and small circle cutters
Step 1: Dust the work surface with corn starch and roll out some white fondant. Use the large circle cutter to cut out three white circles for the topper backgrounds.
Step 2: Put the background circles to the side. Now roll out a long rectangle or white and red fondant. Trim the edges straight and join them together as shown.
Step 3: Use the large circle cutter to cut out 2 circles that are exactly half red and half white.
Step 4: Lightly dampen the background circle with water.
Step 5: Carefully attach the half circles of red and white to each background.
Step 6: Roll out a thin snake of black fondant with the rolling pin.
Step 7: Trim the black fondant with the rolling cutter.
Step 8: Use the large circle cutter to cut out exact sections of the black trim for the middle of each Poké Ball.
Step 9: Attach the black trim with water.
Step 10: Use the small circle cutter to cut out three black circles. Roll them out a little to make them slightly wider..
Step 11: Use the same small cutter now to cut out three white circles. They will go on top of the black ones as shown.
Step 12: Attach the circle centers to each Poké Ball.
Step 13: Allow the cupcake toppers to dry and harden on a parchment-lined cookie sheet in a cool room.
Allow the toppers to dry for at least 3 days so they will hold their shape. Add them to the top of any home made or store bought cupcakes and delight your Pokémon fans!!
