Confirmation Cupcakes

 


The son of a very dear friend got confirmed today and his mom and I got together last week to come up with something appropriate for the cupcakes for the reception.  After much deliberation we came up with a cross and a dove.  I cut the crosses using the Wedding Solutions cartridge on my cricut cake.  I used sugar paste this time - rolled it out on the mat, put it in the freezer for about 5 minutes before cutting and it cut beautifully. The dove was cut with a little cutter that I have.  I used Luster Dust with a little Vodka to paint the crosses silver.  The cupcakes are red velvet flavour with cream cheese icing.  They were not only very yummy but looked pretty too and her guests had nothing but sweet comments, which made me very happy :-)
Congratulations on your Confirmation, Ethan, may God always be your guiding light!

  2. They look wonderful! You are so sweet to make these. When my son made his First Communion, I made 70 bags of chocolate crosses, each bag contained 10 of these crosses. Whew! Great job!
    Lots of Hugs
