These cupcakes are made for a colleague's birthday.The cupcakes are decorated to translate her fun personality. She loves Twilight and the colour red, so the cupcakes are in chocolate and with red frosting. Each cupcake has a different phrase that describes the birthday girl, Megan. At the party, everyone is encouraged to have fun with these cupcakes and snap a photo mix and matching the phrases for the birthday girl.

6. Then I use a toothpick and apply colouring gel to make batches of beige, brown, pink and black fondants
7. WIth a small circle cutter or a clean lid from a salt/pepper container, cut out circles from the beige fondant. This will be the faces.
8. For the hair, I cut out a long strip of metal sheet approximately 1 inch wide and shape the hair or you can also use a clean  exact-o-knife and cut out the shape freehand
9. Cut out hair pieces from brown fondant
10. Cut out small circles from black fondant. These will be the eyes
11. Cut out different shapes of pink fondant. These will be the mouth
12. Dap your paintbrush with little water and "glue" the hair pieces onto the face fondant.
13. "Glue" the rest of the facial pieces onto the faces
14. I also stamped the birthday girl's name onto the fondant pieces
