.

The Icing

We have used a modelling paste icing (Sattina 3 in 1) so that the toppers set firm and can be placed at an angle on the piped cupcakes; this icing sets firm overnight and the toppers can be easily removed before eating. If you want to decorate the Queen’s face directly onto round biscuits, a cake or cupcakes, use sugarpaste (fondant) so that the icing stays nice and soft to eat.

.

The Face

Colour some white icing using a soft honey tone (Queen’s skintone) then roll out on your worktop to around 3-5mm in thickness and use the cutter to cut out a large circle. Turn the cutter over, cut out a small oval shape then cut in half to make two small ears.

Handy Tip
Use a cornflour pouch to dust your work surface before rolling out the icing. You can also dust your hands to stop them getting sticky!

.

The Hair & Features

Colour some icing a soft grey tone using a tiny amount of black paste food colouring; the easiest way to take up a small amount of colouring is to dip a cocktail stick into the pot. Roll out the icing to around 3mm in thickness and cut out approximately 5 large ovals shapes then slice off a few sections as shown so that the hair can sit neatly around the head. For the fringe, roll out a circle and use the edge to cut out the shape of a pointed ellipse. Mark each shape as shown with edges of the cutter to resemble hair.

Overlap the hair sections around the face attaching with edible glue, then colour additional small amounts of icing pale pink, pink honey (skin tone) and rose pink with your paste colours so they are ready to help create the facial features. Cut out a small honey-coloured circle for the nose and attach to the middle of the face, then 2 small pale pink circles to create the cheeks. To make the eyelids, cut out a small oval honey-coloured shape, cut in half then use the cutter to cut away sections to create two small crescents. Attach either side above the nose then do the same for the eyebrows, just smaller in grey or white icing. For the lips, cut out a rose pink shield shape (the point will be the bottom of the lips). Use a curved edge to cut away most of the shield, then use the pointed part of the cutter to create the cupid bow. Use a black edible ink pen to draw on the eyelashes.

.

The Crown

To make the crown, cut out 3 shield shapes in white and slice off the pointed bottom sections. To paint, use either a silver or gold lustre powder colouring mixed with water or rejuvenator spirit, then attach a few sprinkles over the top with edible glue.
