Olivia & Emily the Strange Cupcakes

Olivia & Emily the Strange Cupcakes

I had a few extra cupcakes from my "Iron Cupcake Trials"- they turned out pretty good, but I have one more recipe that I have to try out before I post it. In the meantime, here are 2 book characters that I decided to try out painting. Olivia the Pig & Emily the Strange.

This is my first time using petal dust and color gel + lemon extract to paint on fondant. I'm sorry I couldn't take more pictures or do a whole tutorial for this as it was my first time and i'm certainly no pro at it. But, here is one picture that shows you in a glimpse how I did it and what tools I used.


I am working on doing the Hoops & Yoyo tutorial because a reader from Sweet Cuppin Cakes Bakery blog requested it. Painting on fondant takes a lot of time- i'm glad I picked book characters that used only 2 colors! I have my one year old to watch, so its difficult to try to work fast and at the same time take good photos that explain what i'm doing. I have to save that for the weekends when my husband is home and can watch our baby. Tutorials will be coming up though~ just keep checking back.

Visit their websites Olivia the Piglet & Emily the Strange.
**to be honest, I have never read any of the Emily books, but I saw the book while at Barnes & Nobles, it really caught my eye. As for the Olivia books, I have a few~ it's my daughter's name=) **

I've never heard of either of the characters, but these are gorgeous!!! I can't wait for the tutorial! I'd love to learn how you do these!

it's really smart to have paired them since they have the same color schemes.. i know both of the characters and they are definitely striking!

Thank you both! I'm trying to get the tutorials done as soon as possible, but there have been some setbacks. I'm sorry, but i'm working on it! Stay tuned!
