Hi everyone, today I’m excited to show you these 3 easy Christmas cupcake topper tutorials. I’ve created these toppers with a beginner to cake decorating in mind. I’ve not used any special tools or cutters and tried to make the tutorials as simple as possible, while still achieving great results.

The only tools I used are a toothpick, knife and a cake smoother. I used a cake smoother to help roll my modelling paste into tubes, but you can just use your hands if you don’t have one.

All you need for these cupcakes is modelling paste and something to cut out a circle shape with. I used clear alcohol as a glue as it evaporates leaving no marks. You could use water, but use very sparingly, as it can leave a mark behind. A list of the modelling pastes I used can be found at the bottom of the page. Modelling paste is stronger than sugarpaste (fondant) making it easier to model with and it will set firmer.

Below is the full video tutorial showing how to make these easy Christmas cupcakes! The day before I made the toppers, I made the white discs that they will be placed on. I simply rolled out some white modelling paste and then cut out three circles with a circle cutter. If you don’t have a cutter, you could cut around a glass or a cup. I made them the day before to give them time to set, so they were easier to handle when sticking the decorations on top.
