DIY Raindrop and Cloud Cupcake Toppers

Let’s make rain­drop and puffy cloud edi­ble fon­dant cup­cake top­pers! This is an easy DIY you can do with your lit­tle ones. These cup­cake top­pers are a fun idea for a weather-themed birth­day party or for a baby shower for a lit­tle baby boy. Drip drop, here comes happy rain!

DIY Raindrop and Cloud Cupcake Toppers

What You Need

  • A small ball of white fon­dant (also known as sugar paste). Fon­dant is read­ily avail­able at bak­ing sup­ply and craft super­stores, or you can make your own marsh­mal­low fon­dant.
  • A small ball of blue fon­dant (I tinted my white fon­dant blue using gel food col­or­ing in sky blue)
  • A small cloud cookie cut­ter (or a fon­dant flower cut­ter, which is what I used)
  • A teardrop shaped cookie cutter
  • A rolling pin
  • A small amount of cornstarch
  • An edi­ble food dec­o­rat­ing pen in black

Step 1
Roll out your white fon­dant to about ¼ inch thick, using a lit­tle bit of corn­starch and your rolling pin. Using your cloud cut­ter or flower cut­ter, cut out “cloud” shapes.

Step 2
Using your edi­ble food writ­ing pen, cre­ate a sim­ple face on your cloud shape. I like to just do two wide-set eyes and a sim­ple mini-smile. I never do a nose because it takes away from the cute­ness factor!
