After many cake deliveries to work I was asked to create a birthday cake for a work colleague’s child’s 3rd Birthday… Lion King themed! I love it! In the end they asked for 20 cupcakes.
It took quite a bit of practice to get them looking like this but I was pretty happy.
I found it useful to watch some YouTube videos for extra tips and the piping bag-filling tips on this one were so helpful!
I had a look around online for some toppers, I was in 2 minds about whether to pipe animal-themed designs on to each cupcake but decided that the toppers would be a win with the kids… I ended up ordering off Etsy.com and was very happy with what I got.
They are simple vanilla cupcakes with simple vanilla icing, I coloured half using natural food colouring I bought at Lakeland and used a dual-piping bag. It took quite some practice but I got this effect in the end.
