Nikki from Tikkido is a baker and cake designer extraordinaire, so I'm excited for her to share how she made these pumpkin toppers, perfect for Halloween and Thanksgiving!
I love making little pumpkins out of gumpaste or fondant to create adorable little edible cupcake decorations. They're so fast and easy to make, especially if you use my secret material, cloves.
- Whole cloves
- Gumpaste or fondant (I like Satin Ice brand)
- Orange food coloring
- Small, sharp knife
Start by coloring your gumpaste orange, and rolling it into a ball.
Just beautiful, Nikki! I'm going to try them soon!
