Ballerina Tutu Cupcakes
Alexis cake for her pink and zebra print party
The next year I created a cake that was one of my favorite cakes I've worked on. She's quite the artist, and had an art party at a local studio where all the girls got to paint and make some projects. I loved making the fondant pieces and designing the look of this cake. I also made some crayon sugar cookies

Last year I was gone at a work conference for her birthday, so I wasn't able to make her cake. But I did create some Elsa, Anna, and Olaf fondant toppers for Frozen cupcakes!
This year, I decided to do ballet themed cupcakes because that's a special connection she and I have, I used to do ballet as well and love watching her get excited about her recitals!
I wasn't sure what kind of ballet cupcakes to make, so I looked around online for ideas. I found an adorable tutu marshmallow pops on Pinterest that are pretty popular. I thought that rather than create the pops, I could turn those into a cupcake design.
The cupcakes were easy to decorate, I just piped on the icing as normal and then topped with a decorated marshmallow. The marshmallow serves as the tutu bodice and is easy to make by adding some sprinkles to a damp marshmallow.
Here's how I made the cupcakes -
