  • Congratulations Kate and Wills! We bet there’ll be a few cakes like these baked for the new little prince. If you or a loved one are expecting a baby boy, these baby boy cupcakes are perfect. You can personalise your cupcakes to make them extra special for the bouncing newborn.

    Choose whatever cupcake flavour you like, chocolate, lemon, carrot or plain vanilla sponge. Each topper is made from modelling fondant which can be found in most supermarkets in the cake decorating aisle or bought online.

    The cupcake toppers can be made weeks in advance as long as they are kept in a breathable cardboard cake box. If you keep them in a standard tupperware box, they’ll sweat and won’t look as pretty.

    This recipe should take 1hr and 35 mins to decorate. This recipe makes 12 toppers, 4 baby faces, 4 bibs and 4 ‘baby boy’ cakes.

    Are you or a loved one having a girl? Don’t worry, we’ve got baby girl step-by-step cupcakes too!
