Birthday parties

Cupcake decorating ideas: Clown

We’ve whipped up a month’s worth of decorating ideas for our 30th birthday, because we think every day calls for adorable desserts!


Cover cupcake with white glaze icing. Place a red M&M in centre of cupcake. Cut a piece of red fruit leather into a smiling mouth shape. Place under nose. Stick a piece of black licorice lace on mouth. Arrange small pieces licorice lace into X-shaped eyes. Cut a mini ice cream cone in half lengthwise and place at top edge of cupcake. Press cotton candy “hair” into icing on either side of cone and on tip of hat.
