  • Celebrate the birth of the royal baby this year with these cute and creative cupcakes. Designed and made by our cupcake queen Victoria Threader, these unique cupcakes are the perfect treat to mark the birth of the royal baby.

    Not only are these cupcakes impressive, they taste good too with a classic vanilla sponge. Feel free to experiment with different flavoured sponges to suit yours or your family’s taste buds. These cupcakes would also make a great gift for a friend or family’s newborn.

    These cupcakes might take up to 4hrs to make as they take a lot of practice and precision but are definitely worth the effort and look stunning. This recipe makes 6 toppers for 6 regular sized cupcakes.

    All of the equipment like the shoe mould etc. can be bought at cake craft stores or online. The fondant used in this recipe can be found in most supermarkets in the cake decorating aisle.
