As it's nearly Easter, I've been trying to put together the Chick Family for you and today; I finally managed to do it. 👩‍🍳 So please welcome... Daddy Chuck Mummy Chic ...and Baby Chickster to the site. :hatchingchick: As you can see, these adorable toppers are easy on the eye and, in all honesty, relatively easy to make. So if you're looking for a 'to do' project with the kids over the holidays, then have a go at these. To make the Easter Chick Toppers, you will need...
 
If you want to get into the festivities and it's looking a little cold outside then why don't you look at creating your own edible bobble hats? All you'll need are a Terry's Chocolate Orange, plain cupcakes, knitted moulds and some fondant icing. These are great gifts for the festive season and can also be used for a topper on a Baby Shower cake too. Literally, all you have to do is emboss the icing with the moulds, wrap it around the cupcake or chocolate orange and then add the pom-pom...
 
These Num nom cupcakes were made to accompany the Berry Berry Swirl Cake I made for my God-daughter. I used claret pink for the faces of the pink num noms and then used a darker claret pre-dyed icing for the bows. The eyes and nose are Renshaws black decor icing and the eyelashes were made using a foodoodler black coloured edible pen. As there were boys attending the party I made some blue Num Noms of my own design, these had the stars on the ear and were baby blue in colour.
 
Simple and fun Christmas model decorations which are relatively quick and easy to make. These are great for cupcake toppers or as a feature on your Christmas cake. I used chocolate icing for the rich brown textures; this made the Santa Sack filled with presents, the base of the Christmas pudding and the snowman's hat. I used white icing for the snowman body, the snowflakes (I also used a snowflake cutter for the shape). The Christmas tree was made using Renshaws green lincoln icing, and...
 
Here is a lovely Dalmatian design that I found in one of my books recently and couldn't wait to recreate him. I made Spot using Renshaws white, black and Poppy red icing. His tongue was made from spare pink icing that I had, and the bone was made using the Teddy bear brown colour. The dog itself was straightforward to make and was just a mixture of rolled up shapes. I did the spots freehand and added the bone as a finishing touch using teddy bear brown coloured Renshaws icing and a veining...
 
Here is a recent West Highland Terrier with a ball that I made out of icing. I used Renshaws white icing for the body, Poppy red icing for the collar and Jet Black icing for the eyes and nose. I used some spare pink icing I had for the slither of pink for the inset in the Westies mouth, and then I mixed the red white and a little pre-dyed (using baby blue sugar flair dye) icing to form the multi-coloured ball. I then used a tiny tipped embossing ball tool and a veiner to make the fur marks...
 
These flower cupcakes are very easy to make and can be a great last-minute gift for someone. I made chocolate cupcakes and topped them with chocolate fudge icing. For the flowers, I used gerbera/sunflower cutters for the large flower, daisy cutters for the centre and then finished them off with a silver pearl ball or silver dragees as they are also known as. They are quite effective and relatively quick and easy to make.
 
These are the recent alien monster cupcake toppers that I have made. The sugarflair concentrated dyes I used to make the colours are as follows: Ice and Baby Blue, Grape, Melon, Tangerine and Party Green. The red, white and black are Poppy Red, Black and White Decor Icing by Renshaws. All you need to recreate these monster treats are: Circular, square and oval plunge cutters, a PME wheel, black pearls and a little imagination, the results are simply endless. You could try these with the...
 
Here is a little inspiration for Valentine's day. This lovely little edible Owl is an adorable gift to make your loved one for Valentine's Day. I used chocolate icing for the body, Poppy red Renshaws decor~ice for the heart-shaped chest and hearts and then finished off with white icing and edible black balls for the pupils, the feet were made with yellow icing that I had pre-dyed. Please see the owl tutorial for further instructions...
