Christmas Bow Cupcake Tutorial

Step 1:

Step 2:

Use the tooth pick to help release the flower paste from the bow cutter. Use edible glue to stick the tails on top of one another with a small gap between the two. Place the loops and centre piece of the bow upside down on your surface. Use edible glue in the middle of the loops and bring both sides into the middle forming a bow. Put edible glue in the middle of the centre piece and lift your bow onto it, securing the centre piece around your bow. Flip your bow over and use edible glue to attach it to the tails.

Step 4:

Roll out the white sugarpaste (keeping it quite thick) and cut out a circle using the cutter. Pipe some buttercream in the middle of the cupcake & place the white disc on top. Flatten slightly with your hand and then use your fingers to gently bring the sides down. *Top Tip Do not use your finger tips as you will make dents in the dome.* Use edible clue to stick on the 2 long strips & cut to size with the pizza wheel.
