I have been asked to make pink flamingo cupcake toppers for an upcoming order, but I cant think or a way of doing them and I cant find anything Im too excited about online to try to recreate. Has anybody made any or have any ideas?
Are you wanting to make them out of fondant or just make the round paper cutouts that stick to a toothpick and are inserted in the cupcake?
I would like to make them out of fondant. I just found one online where somebody used a flamingo cookie cutter and it looks cute, but the cutter is 4" tall and Im not sure if that too high to put on a cupckcake! Im not sure what size cutter this person used. Im assuming 4" because I couldnt find anything smaller.
Not edible, but so very cute....
just google it and will come an ideas rain http://www.google.com/search?q=flamingo+cupcakes&hl=en&prmd=imvns&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=wpWSUOaoJaa-igLrpYCoCw&sqi=2&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1280&bih=699 hope that help
Ive been googling it for a few week. I just havent come up with anything Im in love with. Thank you for the suggestions!
You could check this site: If they don't have the cutter you want, they will make one for you. I have no idea what they charge:
Or you could put your fondant or fondant/gumpaste mix into a mold (these are 1.5 inches) and stick a toothpick in the bottom before the flamingo hardens:
Or try a flamingo candy mold. You could use fondant/gumpaste or colored chocolate. For example:
search Amazon for "FLAMINGO LOLLY ON DISC" - you could pour the chocolate and then cut off the disc, or pour pink for the flamingo and then another color for the disc (yellow? moon over Miami?)
Or you could use an ice-cube tray:
If you decide to go with non-edible, there are (obviously) cupcake picks, but also search on "flamingo straws" (cut off the top part of the straw) and "flamingo party picks" - many, many choices.
