Tinkerbell Cupcakes

Favor’s for my niece’s 4th birthday party.

Like I’ve mentioned before, family goodies are usually a time for experimentation. I wanted to do something “artsy” with the sugar cookies, not just the usual Tinkerbell’s face, butterflies or flowers that go along with this theme.

Yet I still ended up doing Tinkerbell’s green dress, butterflies and flowerss. So I’m a hypocrite.

I outlined a few of Tinkerbell’s different poses on sugar cookies with a food marker, piped her dress and used sparkle gel for her wings. The chocolate cupcakes were topped with chocolate buttercream and the sugar cookie placed on top.

I really wanted to use an iridescent luster dust for the wings (something I’ve never worked with before), but it doesn’t seem to be popular in my neck of the woods (meaning I couldn’t find it anywhere!). I didn’t realize this in enough time to have the luster dust shipped or to make a road trip, so I made do with the pink sparkle gel.

I guess the lesson I learned this time around is make sure you can get the ingredients you want to experiment with. In a timely manner.

For the vanilla cupcakes, I piped a pink buttercream rose and added a sugar cookie butterfly, decorated with purple buttercream.

To package them as favors, I borrowed this idea from Bird On A Cake. I placed the cupcakes in a 10 oz plastic cup, placed the cup in a favor bag, made a cute (if I do say so myself) “Thank You” tag and tied it all up with a pretty ribbon.
