I know it’s kind of early, The Son of Neptune won’t be out till October but I just have to post this. To say that I love Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series is an understatement. I read and re-read and re-read the whole series over and over again. I wish it could go on forever, but sadly the fifth and last book was already released. Good news is, Rick started a new series (The Heroes of Olympus) with new characters and here’s the best part – the old ones are still there! Seems like I’m not the only one who can’t.
Anyway, here’s a cupcake topper tutorial I made inspired by the first Percy Jackson book – trident topped cupcakes. That’s one of the best parts of the book, Poseidon finally claiming Percy as his own. Anyway, enough ramblings – here it goes.
Basically, we’d need piping gel, some straws, royal icing, star tip, blue and teal color gel, brush and luster dust.
Here’s how it’s done.
Using royal icing in a piping bag with a star tip, pipe a trident in one end of the straw. Let it try overnight.
Paint the trident with teal gel color. Let it dry for at least four hours.
Dust the trident with gold luster dust.
And your done!
Now for the cupcakes, using a spatula, top the cupcakes with some blue frosting. Color the piping gel blue and add it on top of the cupcake.
Using the other end of the straw, combing the frosting with the gel.
Place trident on top each cupcakes.
Wanna see how well read my Lightning Thief copy is?
