Buttercream Cupcakes

Prepare the buttercream by colouring most of it with navy blue food colouring gel. If you wish, colour some pale blue and leave some white, to give a two/three-tone effect when piping.

Fill piping bag with one, two or three shades of buttercream and pipe swirls from the outside inwards towards the centre.

Sugarpaste Cupcakes

Colour the white sugarpaste with navy blue food colouring gel to a dark shade. (You may leave a small piece white if you wish to marble some of the sugarpaste for the cupcakes).

Cut out 75mm circles to place on top of the cupcakes. You may vary the tops by adding the gold lustre modelling paste, or opt for a blue marbled finish.

Decoration

To match our starry night cake design, simply pipe a navy blue buttercream swirl and sprinkle the gold shimmer confetti on top, Starting with alot at the tip and working down to less.

You can use any of the pearls and sprinkles listed to create your own unique designs as we did, add an edible sugarsoft gold rose. Cut out tiny stars using the gold modelling paste. Finish with the edible glitter spray to add a touch of sparkle. The choice is yours!
