friends of the b/f and mine are getting married next month and to celebrate we had a wedding shower for them. i of course got to make the cupcakes! they got engaged at medieval times in Florida so the theme of the shower was medieval times. the toppers were made from fondant with a little tylose power to give them a little more strength. the castle isn't actually cake, just a cake dummy covered in fondant. they (bride and groom) loved them.
i made the bride and groom to be their own much larger cupcakes that i put in cups to act like pedestals.
