Today we’re having a surprise baby shower for one of our co-workers. No worries, she’s not a blog follower so she won’t see them here first. I volunteered to make cupcakes. I love making cupcakes and jump at the chance to make them when I can. My co-worker is having a boy so I immediately thought of making fondant teddy bears to top the cupcakes with. I decided that instead of trying to make bears with actual faces and features that I would simply cut out a teddy bear shape from a piece of fondant that I had embossed.
Last year I discovered this tutorial by The Magical Cupcake Company. I immediately ran out to Joann’s to look for the Cuttlebug embossing folders. I went a little crazy and bought several because they were on sale and I had a coupon too. I tried them once and then never again. I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to try them out again since I wanted a simple design for these cupcakes.
These are the first cupcakes I made with the embossing folder.
Anywho, I made a video tutorial to show you how I embossed the bears for the cupcakes. Hope you find it helpful.
Have a great week everyone!!!
