Cinderella fondant cupcake toppers
These sweet cupcake toppers were made to capture various well-known elements of Cinderella’s story, including some of the main characters and recognizable details. Though the figures lay flat on the toppers, they are still modeled with various layers and dimension, bringing them to life. Additional discernible features, such as the pumpkin, carriage and dress adorn the complementing designs, as personalization is included to customize the collection to the birthday girl’s name and age. The blue and white color scheme of the background toppers were deliberately chosen to bring uniformity to the presentation. And for additional ideas for your cupcakes, follow the princess cupcake toppers tutorial to give them the royal treatment!
