Back to School

Cupcake Decortations

Book and Crayon Toppers

It’s that time of year again.  The smell of new folders and pencils is filling the air.  The sound of children’s hearts breaking can be heard in houses all over the neighborhood.

Cheer them up with the smell of cupcakes and edible crayons!  (Their going to eat them anyway might as well give them some that will be yummy!)

Step1

Step1

For the book you’ll need a white thick square and a colored rectangle that is a little more than twice as long as the square.  I used fondant but you could use starbursts as well.  Melt them a little in the microwave then roll/streatch them out.

Step 2

Step 2

Place the white square on the rectangle.

Step 3

Than fold the colored piece over to cover the white piece.  It’s starting to look like a book now.

Step 4

Step 4

I used my spatula but you can use a knife or anything with a skinny flat edge.   You just want to make an indent near the edge of the book.

Step 5

Step 5

This food color marker is great for the little details. I wrote “123″ and “ABC” but you can write whatever you want.

Step 6

Step 6

Here are a few finished books.

For the crayons I made a worm then pinched on end into a point.
