I was asked to create Beatles cupcakes for a sweet sixteen birthday party and the results were fantastic! I have yet to refine my fondant skills, so I made stencils with wax paper and painted the cupcakes with chocolate ganache.
This Instructable will show you how to decorate already baked and frosted cupcakes with... The Beatles! It's easiest to start with cupcakes that have white frosting on them. I'll tell you how to incorporate some color in the next few steps, so don't worry about them being bland!
I will warn you that this is a bit time consuming, but the results are amazing and people will think you're pretty much a genius. Trust me :)
Step 1: Make Your Stencils
Trace the circles of an empty muffin tin on wax paper to use as a sizing reference.
Then, trace the chosen Beatles hair onto wax paper to cut out and use as stencils. Make sure the image fits within the circles you have drawn. You can use the chart attached to this step and choose their hair by year (1964 is my favorite) and then trace them onto wax paper.
Used an exacto knife to cut out the hair outlines. GO very slowly when doing this, especially if your chosen hair design has a lot of edges or points.
