Hey all,


I love the cupcakes in this picture


and am wondering, what exactly are the blue disks/decorations made of? Gumpaste? Fondant?

Also, any idea what gel color to use to get that shade of hot pink in my buttercream?

Thanks for your suggestions!

AAmericolor electric pink.

Some are fondant & some (like butterfly) may be combo or gumpaste.
