  • Love animal cupcakes? Try this tiger design from our cupcake queen Victoria Threader. These tiger cupcakes are great for beginners as they’re not too fiddly and use only a few pieces of fondant. Cupcake toppers are a great to decorate your cakes as you can make them weeks in advance and store them in cardboard boxes until you need them. Fondant can be bought in most supermarkets in the cake decorating aisle. These cupcakes would make the perfect treat for a jungle-themed party.
