Step 1

Bake cupcakes (flavour of your choice) in Gold foil cupcake cases. Colour your buttercream with White Colour Splash dust.

Fit the nozzle into a piping bag and then fill the piping bag with White buttercream.

Step 2

Pipe your cupcakes with your white buttercream. Start in the middle of the cupcakes and swirl to the outer edge, until the cupcake top is completely covered.

 

 

Step 3

Remove the larger of the guides from your Cake Star rolling pin; roll out your gold, rose gold and copper metallic modelling pastes to the depth of the guides left on the rolling pin.

Take the largest holly cutter from the set and cut out 4 of each colour for each cupcake, from the rolled out modelling pastes.

Step 4

Pinch off three small portions of ruby metallic modelling paste and roll into balls, just shy of the size of a pea.

Step 5

Begin to add the metallic holly leaves randomly onto the top of your cupcake by pushing them into the buttercream.

 

For a placement guide please see pictures, finish with three metallic ruby berries in the middle.

Step 6

Gather your holly wreath cake and form them into a ring to complete your holly wreath cupcakes.
