Christmas Party: DIY Santa Fondant Cupcake Toppers

Christmas Party: DIY Santa Fondant Cupcake Toppers


Following on from yesterday's Santa inspired post, I thought I'd share the DIY for the cupcakes I made to match my Christmas Candyland desserts table.

I used sugar paste fondant and printable toppers to decorate the cupcakes. It's not rocket science - more like playing with modelling clay! :)

Christmas Party Ideas: DIY Santa Cake Pops


Chistmas Party Ideas: DIY Santa cake Pops Recipe


If you follow me on Instagram, you'd have seen a few sneak peeks of these cute Santa cake pops, and today I'm sharing the easy step-by-step tutorial.

My seven year old daughter helped me with these ( you can see her little hands in the photos, bless ) and they are perfect to entertain little ones over the Holiday period. 

I used them for my desserts table at the Marie Claire salon in Paris in November, but they would be cool as a party favor or cute gift too. I see them all wrapped up in cellophane paper for hot cocoa stations or even as part of a Christmas gourmet hamper

Great for using up left over cake too...wait, what left-over cake?! ;)

TUTORIAL: Quick & Easy DIY Lace Candles



My love affair with candles started when I was 14. We had to make crafty thing to sell at the school Christmas bazaar, and a candle-making workshop was where it all kicked off. Since then, I try to make my own if I can, like this one here and here.

But making candles from scratch is not always possible..so I cheat a little by embellishing the candle holder itself. With a little imagination, anyone can create really amazing bespoke candles. And no, you do not need to be a seasoned crafter either! ;)

Do you do the Elf of the Shelf Christmas tradition? 

It's a new thing for us, and totally taken over! I love the whole fun aspect of it, and as my husband said "I think it's actually more fun for the parents!"

We love having the little elf stay with us for the Holiday period. The elf gets up to loads of fun and funny mischief, including baking and decorating cupcakes and leaving little presents around

I think the elf on the shelf knows we're a household of cupcake/party-loving people ;)

To celebrate the elf's arrival, I've designed some fun Elf on the Shelf inspired FREE printables that you can download and use to throw a party to celebrate! 

Perfect also for themed Holiday birthdays, play-dates, Christmas favors and gifts...or just because!
