Global Cupcake Design

with Sheryl Bito
Use thin layers of fondant and fun embellishments to create whimsical cupcakes customized to portray people and styles from around the world.

Layer and embellish fondant for detailed cupcake toppers that represent any person you choose! Cupcake designer Sheryl Bito will help you easily translate the essential details of photos into original sketches and templates for personalized toppers fit for any occasion. She will also guide you through a variety of her own clever designs: an Indian bride and groom in exquisite, intricate clothing; a Western couple ready for the aisle in a gorgeous gown and classic tuxedo; a carefree birthday girl with a cake and candle; and a glowing graduate in cap and gown! While making these projects, you'll learn to style these cute cupcake companions with hand-painted details, lace appliqué, beaded decorations and much more!
