Bread and Sugar Paste

I’m visiting Maria Zannini today where my post is about Cinderella Breaking Bread.

My cupcake course was a bit different from what I’d thought it would be. I don’t know why I thought I’d be piping icing. The lesson was with sugar paste and was lots of fun—sort of like reverting to childhood and dabbling with play dough.

Sugarpaste Materials

These are my materials. I’ve rolled my sugar paste into pea and marble shapes ready to make my snowman.

Sugarpaste Figures

Here are my final creations. I have a snowman, a pine tree and two roses and a leaf on the cupcake. An octopus on the biscuit. A fish that looks a bit like a tadpole Smile and my cake pop hedgehog. You need to use your imagination with the hedgehog. The photo didn’t do it justice!

I hope to see you over at Maria’s blog.

  1. That is so cute and creative… looks like a great thing to do when needing time away from writing:)

  2. It was fun and the only barrier is your imagination.

  3. That’s looks like fun, you did a great job.

  4. I think I need more practice. It would be a fun thing to do with an entire family.

  5. Edible sculpture! This would be great for a kid’s party or a baby shower.

  6. Yes, you can do some really cool stuff from delicate pretty cookies to Starwars cupcakes.

  7. Oh, my goodness! This looks like fun and something even I could manage. Is it easy?

  8. It’s easy and even better, you just eat your mistakes :)

  9. My kind of topping!

  10. How fun!

  11. It was a great way to spend a Saturday morning.

  12. Very cute. I’m glad you had fun, even if it wasn’t quite what you expected. Your hedgehog reminds me of the wolf cupcakes friends and I made a couple years ago. They didn’t look a thing like the photo, but we had fun making them (and it still make sus laugh every time they come up), and they tasted good no matter what they looked like in the end.

  13. Wolf cupcakes sound like a fun thing to bond over :)
