We love all things Easter here at Pretty Witty Academy, so before you gorge yourself on chocolate why not make some of these cute Mini Easter Egg Cupcake Toppers? Learn with our free tutorial from Pretty Witty Academy how.
This is a great one to do with the kids during the school holidays and they can be left to dry out until you are ready to add them to your cupcakes.
There are so many different options and with the choice between embossing pins, embossing mats/sheets and even embossing stamps. So how do you know which to go for?
Embossing pins: Embossing pins usually come in a few different lengths and widths and can be really good for small detailed patterns such as polka dots or lace designs. You can also get some lovely basket weave rollers which are great for creating basket weave panelled Easter basket cakes. The pins are often better used on small details rather than on a whole cake unless you panel it. This is because when you come to smooth your cake you can end up smoothing out some of the embossed effect. A few of our favourites are:
Embossing Mats. Embossing mats are really great for getting a pattern on a whole cake. You can cover the whole cake in sugarpaste and then go around the sides with an embossing mat. Just be careful to join up the pattern! Here are a couple of our favourites:
Embossing stamps are a great way to add small details to cakes or cupcakes. You can even buy the letters of the alphabet so you can create your own messages. This is a great tool if you aren't confident with piping messages, or you just don't have time to cut out individual letters from sugarpaste. Or you can buy stamps of pretty shapes and designs to add detail to your cakes. You can also then add colour to the embossed area with edible paints or dusts. Here are some of our favourites:
It's a great idea to try a few different ways of embossing to see which are your favourite methods and designs. A great chance to do this is at the various Cake Shows held all over the world. Where retailers will have a variety of tools for you to try before you buy.
