Ideas please! I have an order for baby's first birthday, mom wants the cupcake cookie cutter with that has the one candle on the top. Colors are hot pink and lime green. My initial thought was "oh, cute and fun with sprinkles, etc", then she told me that she didn't want cutesy, but elegant. Any ideas? Thanks!
i would make sure to put a lot of lines on the "cupcake paper". that will make it seem less cartoony. maybe some lustre dust on the "frosting".
you could also ice the cookie then put fondant accents (circles, hollow circles, stars,etc)
Check out some of the cupcake threads on Flickr(photo sharing site).
You'll get lots of ideas.
I'm assuming with those colors it is for a girl? Use lots of fondant flowers.
YOUR cookies are amazing,by the way...
How about doing all the "wrappers" in a dull gold,and make half of the tops pink,and half lime green...with either a dull gold,or the other colour candle...Then do a "swag" like a garland with the gold and tiny flowers(fondant cut outs or piped) with "dull" gold,it wouldn't be too flashy...
Shade in vertical lines on the wrappers with a brown,maybe..
Great ideas! Thank you all so much! I knew I came to the right place with my question. Now I probably won't be able to sleep tonight with all the ideas running through my mind.
And yes, the cookies are for a girl. I'm excited to make these, the family just adopted the little girl about 6 mos ago and are having a big celebration for her first birthday. I'm thrilled to have a part in their/her big day!
