Tutorial: How To Make A Cupcake Flower Topper

Photo: Cakeb0tI love modeling chocolate for cupcake toppers! Modeling chocolate is a yummy, soft alternative for gumpaste, and it's easy to make yourself. 

Above is a video tutorial on how to make a modeling chocolate and a yummy cupcake flower; below are the instructions!

Small rolling pin
Gumpaste flower cutter
Modeling Chocolate (click for complete recipe on Cakeb0t)

You also need:

Small round sprinkle for the center
Tooth pick or Craft knife


1. Take the modeling chocolate and knead it so it is just softened.

2. On a flat surface, roll out the modeling chocolate to the desired thickness of your flower. This flower was about 1/8" thick.

3. Press a flower cutter in the rolled modeling chocolate to create a flower. Pull away the excess.

4. Place a round sprinkle in the middle of the flower and shape the petals of the flower so they come up halfway toward the center.

5. With a craft knife or tooth pick, simply pick up with flower, and place it on top of your cupcake!
