Hi!!

Does anyone know where I can get a small crown pref. a mold for fondant or I guess cutter where I can make it myself? I'm doing a bunch of cupcakes with crown toppers so I can't do something so giant, and when I google online that's all I found. It has to be sized right for a nice size cupcake. Not the king kind of looking crowns either--It's for a prince theme. I know I can do it by hand, but it would save time if I had something to use.

Thanks!

This might not be exactly what you wanted, but in my pics i did cupcakes with a little crown cutout on them. I bought the cookie cutter at Hobby Lobby. I rolled out fondant and cut them out and of course sprinkled edible glitter on them. Hope this helps.

They aren't edible but look pretty.

Thank you both!--The crown toppers are really cute, but I don't have a hobby lobby by me, and also am looking for something that kind of is shaped around like a crown--kind of 3Dish if possible.

And thanks for the link, but the crown needs to be edible

You could draw something like one of these shapes

in cupcake size flat on paper, then use that as a template to cut it out in gumpaste and let dry in crown shape.

If you are not opposed to chocolate, there is a princess crown wilton mold just for cupcakes. You should be able to find it at a local craft store or order it online if you have a while.

Google image search "wilton princess chocolate mold cupcake' to see photos of what I am talking about. I did them for a little girls party and they turned out really cute!

I've used Silicone Plastique on some barbie sized crowns to make my own molds. I used them on "Princess Cake Pops". I actually piped Wilton melts into the molds, but you could press fondant into them as well.

You can't use any of these? These are small. And you cut the fondant and let it dry wrapped around a tube (like your mini rolling pin, or something thinner).

If you can't find a cutter, you can cut a strip of fondant and then using a tiny circular cutter, cut half circles out.

Or even a star cutter to get the zigzag effect (i use my star plungers they're prefect for tiny angle work if you know what I mean)

I would cut a long strip of fondant & use one of the star cutter angles to so the ^^^^^^ effect & then cut it into smaller strips, attach & voila!

lol HTH


Also I found these on ebay

It's possible that some crowns on this page could could have a chunk cut out and then put back together (so smaller in diameter).
http://www.costumeparty.com/costume-accessories/hats/crowns/

Looks like this one could be cut down to a smaller diameter:
http://www.kaboodle.com/reviews/royal-gold-queen-crown-with-red-jewels-~-halloween-queen-costume-accessories

These look like they could be made smaller in diameter and are less than 3 dollars per dozen.

I know you said you didn't want to make them but, they are pretty easy. I just cut strips of fondant and with any tip I cut out half circles. Used water attach both ends and to finish off I added sugar pearls in the tips.
