So each year I ask him what he wants for his birthday theme. This year he asked for a Harry Potter birthday. He was very specific about what cake he wanted too. For the party at my parent's house, he wants a spell book cake, and for my in-laws he wants golden snitch cupcakes. OK, I can do this :)
So today, I decided to make the wings for the golden snitch cupcakes. I want to give them plenty of time to dry before I transport them 300 miles. So I whipped up a batch of royal icing, traced a sheet full of wings, and began piping. I finished them off with clear decorating sugar, to give them a bit of sparkle.
What do you think?
