Heart Wreath from Cupcakes and White Wafer Paper Roses

Look Ma! No carving! This wreath was made using mini cupcakes.

Here they are. Pretty in pink. All lined up and ready to go.

Twenty six little bundles of joy before the frosting.
The cupcakes were attached to the fondant covered
foam core heart with a dollop of butter cream.
Then all of the nooks and crannies were filled.
A final layer of frosting was slathered over the
 these pink beauties before covering them with fondant.
Kind of hated to hide them but won't they be a lovely surprise?

Here's a close up of some of the 60 wafer paper roses that adorned the heart.
They were SO easy to make and went rather quickly.
They also are as light as a feather and melt in your mouth.
Not in your hands. Unless your hands are wet.

Happy Valentine's Day and thanks for stopping by!

Thank you for the lovely compliment. "Genius" doesn't get used much in my circle unless it's a sarcastic remark so it's refreshing to hear it used in another manner. lol! Thanks for looking!

Hi, could you let me know what kind of rice paper are you using. I try to make some flowers but they are cracking all the time. Thank you:)

Deborah Stauch said...

I used .27mm thick wafer paper made from potato starch, vegetable oil and water. Lightly misting or steaming the paper before you punch the shapes helps immensely with cracking. Icing Images also sells a wafer paper conditioner on their website.
