Cupcake liner tutorial


Wouldn't it be fun to make your own cupcake paper liners? I have developed a technique that shows you how to do just that. For making these cups you will need molds. Cupcake molds are now available in my Etsy store.  Click here for buying mold. If you like you can buy a DVD that shows you how to make the cupcakes as well. DVD with molds
The molds I make can withstand the heat from the oven and can be baked over and over again.

You will need the following:
A cupcake mold available here Etsy
Liquid Fimo
Chalks in colors of your choice + white to make it a bit more opaque . A small paint brush. This you will find in your craft store or online

Blend liquid Fimo with powdered pigments or chalk. Adjust with the white chalk/pigment powder to make it more pastel and to get it opaque.
Blend it well together with a spatula or knife.

With a small brush, dab some in the cupcake molds. Do not expect to cover it completely in first bake as it will be made in stages. Now put it in your preheated oven and bake for about ten minutes. Take it out and allow to cool a bit so you don't burn yourself. Put on another coat and then in the oven to set again for ten minutes. Do this one more time and it should be enough. (if not just put on yet another coating) Release it from the flexible mold.

Top can be embellished with gold paint or other color. Just put a small amount of paint or gold pen on paper  and carefully rub the top of the cupcake liner into the paint.

A feast of cupcakes being made in different stages. Great fun to make.
