Pokémon Go is a new mobile app that has become a global phenomenon. 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 a step-by-step instruction on maing 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 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!!

Happy Caking!
