Top Tips

  • Don't forget to plan ahead so you can leave small details such as the egg shell to dry
  • You can make up cupcake toppers like these well ahead of time and add them to your cupcakes last minute.
  • You will need to allow the discs to go hard before adding them to your cupcakes, otherwise they will loose their shape.
