TUTORIAL: Cinco de Mayo Fiesta Cupcakes


 



The Cinco de Mayo-inspired Pinata Birthday Party Printables I designed last year will always be one of my faves and mean a great deal to me, as my dear dad helped me to style it and create some of the decorations for it.

And today I'm sharing a couple of really easy fiesta cupcake ideas you can create for your own Cinco de Mayo celebrations or a Pinata Birthday bash using Dulce de Leche and sugar paste fondant - How bad can that be?! :)



What you'll need:

* Sugar paste fondant in red, yellow, orange and green
* Rolling pin
* Round cookie cutter (or a cup) to fit top of your cupcake
* Small flower cookie cutter
* Cupcakes
* Dulce de Leche


Flower Pinata Cupcake

1. Roll yellow fondant to about 1/8 of an inch (4mm) thick and cut using a round cookie cutter

2. Cut flower base our of orange fondant, and make flower center balls out of red and green fondant
Squash the little balls slightly wit your thumb to make the flower centers. Attach center to flower base using  a little water. TIP: You could also use smarties as centers! :)

3. Spread some Dulce de Leche onto each cupcake. 

4. Then top each with yellow base and flowers. Let dry then insert a cute Pinata cupcake from Bird's Party into each cupcake.




Stripy Birthday Fiesta Cupcake

1. Roll yellow, red, green and orange fondant to about 1/8 of an inch (4mm) thick and cut into strips.
Arrange strips side by side in alternating colors.

2. Using a rolling pin, roll across the strips to "bind" them together

3. Cut a circle from the technicolor fondant using the round cookie cutter.

4.  Apply Dulce de Leche to each cupcake and add the colored fondant on top. Let dry then insert a colorful Fiesta cupcake topper from Bird's Party into each cupcake.




Hope you like the ideas and feel inspired to create your own colorful fiesta cupcakes! :)
