This Step by Step will show you how to make these awesome Beach Themed Cupcakes and include instructions and what products you will need to achieve your results. You might have similar products already in your collection that you can improvise with, but in case you need them I have added the links to the list of what’s been used.
- 500g of White Sugarpaste
- Red, Ice Blue, Royal Blue, Yellow and Green Sugarflair Colours
- Black Edible Pen
- Double Sided Circle Cutters
- Non Stick Rolling Pin
- Piping Tube
Colour 440g of the sugarpaste pale blue, 20g yellow, 10g Royal Blue, 10g Green, 10g Red and leave 10g White.
Roll out the pale blue and, using the double sided circle cutter, cut 12 circles the size of your cupcakes. Cut using vegetable fat to stop the icing sticking to your cutter or work surfaces. Place on a foam mat to dry.
Roll the yellow sugarpaste out finely and then cut another circle the same size as the original but this time cut the bottom third off it and use this as your sand. Attach with a brush and a little water.
With the remaining yellow cut 12 small circles using the tip of a plain-tipped piping tube. If the sugarpaste gets stuck simply nudge it out with the soft end of the brush. Attach to the cupcake as shown before with a small amount of water.
Roll and cut 1 strip of white and 1 strip of red, 1cm wide. Cut little red and white rectangles, 2cm long for the huts. Apply to the cupcakes.
Once the huts have been arranged on the sand, use a sharp knife to score door marks on the front of the huts.
Use the zig-zag cutter to cut out the roof shape. You can find this cutters in FMM Straight Frill set 5-8. Attach the roofs with a little water.
Cut out the navy icing, using round and scalloped cutters, cut out a small piece to make the water. Stick on, as before.
Roll out green and with a suitable smaller circle cutter, cut out the hills and place them to the side of the huts. Stick on, as before.
Finally use the black edible pen to dot the handles on the door. Then apply to your cupcakes using whatever flavoured buttercream you would like.
That’s it all wrapped up. You can even use some gorgeous red cupcake cases to match the huts on your Beach Themed Cupcakes.
