YOU WILL NEED

FOR THE MINI CUPCAKES

• mini cupcakes

• buttercream

TO DECORATE

• sugarpaste: white, red and orange

• edible glue

TOOLS

• 3.5cm (13⁄8in) round cutter

• star cutter, approximately 4cm (1½in) in width

• small aeroplane cutter

• stitching wheel tool

• cocktail stick

• foam pad or greaseproof paper

• craft knife

• metal ruler

1 Start by making the discs to mount the ties on. Take some white sugarpaste and roll out on a non-stick work board to approximately 3mm (1⁄8in) thick. Cut out circles using the round cutter. Set them aside to dry on a foam pad or greaseproof paper.

2 To make the square bases, take some red sugarpaste and roll out on a non-stick work board to about 3mm (1⁄8in) thick. Using a craft knife and ruler, carefully cut the sugarpaste into squares measuring approximately 4x4cm (1½x1½in).

3 Before the square bases dry, take the stitching wheel tool and mark a border along opposite edges of each square. Set aside to dry.

4 To make the stars, roll out some orange sugarpaste on a non-stick work board to approximately 3mm (1⁄8in) in thickness. Cut out stars using the star cutter. Set aside to dry.

5 Next, make the aeroplanes using white sugarpaste rolled out to about 2mm (1⁄8in) in thickness. Cut out the aeroplanes with the special cutter and set aside to dry.

6 For the ties, roll out some orange and red sugarpaste. To create the knots, use a craft knife to cut out small squares of orange sugarpaste measuring approximately 8x8mm (¼x¼in). Taper the edges of two opposite sides to give shape to each knot. Using a cocktail stick, gently press down into each knot to create stripes. Set aside to dry.

7 To make the tails of the ties, cut out rectangles of red sugarpaste measuring 3.5x1cm (13⁄8x½in), using a craft knife. Cut the end of each rectangle into a point. Then taper the long sides of the rectangle to give the tie some shape. Take a cocktail stick and add striped detail to the length of the tie. Set aside to dry.
