Step 3: More Details (optional)

For added detail, you can use a decorator tip (No. 5 used here) to poke holes in fondant.

Step 4: "Glue" the Edges

Using a paintbrush, brush a small amount of water at the right and left edge to "glue" the crown together.

Fold the crown around and press the edges together.

Step 5:

Use a fondant cutter tool or a star cutter to give the crown its "points".

Step 6: Embellish

Add a sprinkle edible sugar pearl and airbrush with a glimmer spray.

Ready for the cupcakes!
