Crown Cake Toppers

 In Recipes & Tutorials

I thought I would share this super easy tutorial showing you how to make little crown cake toppers.

All you will need are some pearl dragees, flower paste, royal icing sugar mixed with a little water, a rolling pin, a craft knife, small paintbrush and a couple of modelling tools.


First of all I rolled out some white flower paste


Using a craft knife, straighten out the edges…..

…..and cut a serrated crown shape for the top

Trim off the excess

and form into a crown shape by attaching the ends together


I decorated the top of the crown using some pink pearl dragees kindly supplied by JustBake.


before I popped them on top, I flattened down the points of the crown using a rounded end modelling tool

Dab on a little royal icing sugar mixed with water

Then pop the dragees on top

Then adorn the top of cupcakes with crowns. You can pop them on top of a swirl of buttercream or roll out some fondant icing on a patterned surface to create an interesting textured decoration.

Perfect for a princess party or use different colours and decorations to commemorate The Queens Diamond Jubilee later in the year!

    OMG thank you so much I was wondering how to make these. I have a cupcake to do and the client wants those crowns and unfortunately they discontinued the cutter version in the United States. Thank you, you are a life saver.
