I am looking for ideas on how to make a royal icing alligator. It will go on a cupcake (actually almost 200 cupcakes). Because of the large number of cupcakes, I want to be able to do as much ahead of time as I can.


Fancy Flours has the perfect alligator but I want try and make them myself before buying.  Here they are:


Or plan B is to make chocolate alligators using a mold and putting them on the cupcakes.

ACheck out Montreal confections videos on YouTube. She has some tutorials on figure piping royal icing transfers. She doesn't do alligators, just bears I believe, but it would be a good place to start.

I'd only go the chocolate route if you can find a mold with at least 10-12 alligators on it or want to buy multiple molds. It'll take forever to do 200 if you can only do a few at a time, ESP if you're painting/piping details into the mold.

Good luck!
