Fairy cupcakes

The kids are going to love these cute fairy cupcakes. These little fondant fairies are sitting on a delicious, moist cupcake with a light layer of buttercream – the perfect combo.

With our step-by-step recipe, from our cupcake queen Victoria Threader, you’ll be enjoying these sweet treats in no time at all.

To make the cupcakes we used a basic cupcake recipe with a bright pink buttercream. You could try chocolate or other flavours too – whatever is your child’s favourite flavour.

Topped with an easy-to-make fondant design, these creative and fun cupcakes are great for practising your cupcake decorating skills. Most shops have ready-coloured fondant so you’ll be able to find the modelling fondant easily enough.
