I love making cupcake toppers out of different types of candy instead of fondant, primarily because it tastes a lot better. Candy cupcake toppers are such a fun and simple adornment that anyone can get into. You can really make any decoration for your cupcake to match the theme of the occasion, but today I am showing you a simple and classic rose.
I used this same technique to top my red velvet rose water cupcakes during my appearance on the season 2 Cupcake Wars Champions episode!
I also used this technique for my gumdrop candy rose pops.
Or how about as beautiful fondant cake toppers?!
