Spa girl fondant topper
Similar to the above creation, this precious spa girl made by Mimicafe Union is relaxing and soaking her feet in her robe and head towel, but in a three-dimensional version! The flawless fondant figure was carefully hand-molded and propped up on a scalloped topper with polka dot and floral embellishments. This topper is so incredibly detailed from the facial features to the fingers to the bubbly spa water.

Spa-themed fondant cupcake toppers
These gorgeous spa-themed cupcake toppers by Cakes by Angela Morrison are so very fun and vibrant! Recognizable spa elements, such as robes, cucumbers, flip flops and towels, are delicately shaped to top colorful and patterned fondant cupcake toppers, adding dimension to each design. Some markings are achieved with embossing mats, while other patterns are created by layering multicolored fondant on a plain sheet of fondant, then pressed together with a rolling pin prior to cutting the discs.
Practice making miniature figures and shapes to achieve a similar look in Sheryl Bito’s Tiny Cupcake Toppers class here on Bluprint.

Mature spa-themed party
For a mature spa-themed party, Lynlee’s Petite Cakes created this Namaste Spa dessert table with a sophisticated feel, perfect for an adult birthday party or bridal shower. The table was styled with a calming and serene palette of neutral colors paired with black, gray and light green, along with the use of both real and candy stones utilized as serving displays.
The cupcakes were covered completely with fondant pressed with an impression mat, while fondant stones, bamboo and towel trays were shaped and molded to adorn the tops. Other creative desserts, such as cotton marshmallows, luffa cotton candy and cucumber Rice Krispies treats fill the rest of the table. See the entire Namaste Spa party for additional details and inspiration.

The round cake was covered smoothly with fondant and decorated with cucumber slices, rolled towels and sleep masks. From the techniques learned in the Bluprint course, the figure of the woman was hand-modeled from fondant and dressed in a pink robe, ready for pampering! The cake was further personalized with the birthday girl’s name with fondant letters.
