There are many amazing, fancy and elaborate ways to decorate cupcakes. But sometimes it doesn’t have to be too fancy or there is no time for anything elaborate.

So today I want to share a simpler way to add a little something to your cupcakes. And who says that something simple can’t still be amazing?

It’s these simple flower cupcake toppers.

I think the key to make them “pop” is to chose 3 fondant colors that complement each other but are still contrasting and then arrange them in three different ways.

This particular set was created for a 70s theme party so I choose moss green (green+a little black), mustard yellow (yellow+a touch of brown) and burnt orange (orange+a little red+a touch of brown) as colors.

Of course you can work with any flower cutters that you already own. I believe Wilton discontinued the flower cutter set these light green cutter are from. But when I look at their current Gum Paste Flowers Set it looks like two very similar flower cutters are included, only in blue this time.

For the centers you can use a simple small dot. I used a daisy center stamp from JEM Cutters but this Flower Centers Mold from First Impression Molds will work as well.

For a set of 12 cupcake toppers cut out 4 large flowers in each of your 3 fondant colors. Same for the smaller flowers and the centers. Stack and glue together with a little water or gum glue a large flower, a smaller flower and a center – each of a different color.

It seems simple – but I admit I got a little flustered with the three color combinations. So maybe assemble first before gluing them all together.
As last step and when the flowers have dried a little you can brush them with a little Pearl Dust if you like a little shimmer and bling.

I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial and maybe it comes handy for you. As always, I would love for you to share your creations.

You can email me at regina @ and with your permission I can post them to the website or we could connect even simpler via my Facebook Page.
