In part two of our two part tutorial you will be making the lace floral toppers for your cupcakes.
The process is very much the same as last weeks scalloped cupcake topper, but we will also be using a mold to create cute centers for our flowers.
These cupcake cakes look cute on display in alternation petal and center colors. The addition of pearl luster dust really makes the lace design pop on the flower petals and on the center.
