Learn how to make fondant cupcake toppers that always delight, with party stylist and fondant pro Lynlee Beckett as your guide. First, create a two-inch topper foundation and plan a coordinated set. Then, bring a jungle adventure to life as you build two-dimensional fondant animals for professional-looking designs. Up next, work with shaped cutters to create pretty princess cupcakes, all while incorporating scrolled fondant and pieced-together designs for one-of-a-kind results. Want cupcakes that leave slumber-partiers speechless (for a few seconds, at least)? Find out how to whip up custom letters and an eyelet pattern border, and use a bas-relief effect for unique shapes and figures. Finally, create a teddy bear birthday set with patchwork fondant patterns and three-dimensional figure toppers that always amaze.
