A few weeks ago I bought a silicon cameo mould from a company called ClassiKool and when it came through the post I didn't quite realise how small it was going to be... note to self... read the information provided detailing the size! I had a wedding project in mind when I bought it but it was a bit too small for what I had planned, so, I decided it would be perfect to make mini cupcake toppers with. I finally had the perfect opportunity to try it out when I was asked to make some engagement celebration cupcakes for someone at work.
It was my first time using a mould and my first time using edible paint and I was pleased with the results. I am looking forward to future experiments! The cameo is moulded out of sugar paste and I made the little blossom flowers with gum paste with a sugar pearl painted with gold edible paint in the centre.
The cupcakes are vanilla sponge filled with jam and topped with vanilla buttercream coloured blue. I used the same recipe for the sponge and buttercream detailed in my ice cream sundae blog post.
I still haven't found the perfect cameo mould but when I do I shall be sure to blog about it!
