These cupcakes were handcrafted entirely from polymer clay and are deceptively lightweight:

Materials used:

-Silver microbeads
-Shaved white chalk pastel for the 'sugar'
-Colored chalk pastels
-J.W.etc. Clear Varnish

I love your work. :iconmonkeyloveplz: The icing on the little cupcake is so precise!
I hope you don't mind me asking, (I've been trying to improve my 'icing' skills) Do you know of any tutorials for that classic cupcake icing? What tools do you usually use?....Like any icing piping tools? Sorry I don't think I know the correct terms.
I've never been sure of where to find tools for creating icing so small.

Amazing as usual! Did you use any special piping tip for the frosting? C:
It's just that mine is huge and makes my frosting look weird XD

Thank you so much! A favorite one to use is the 42C Star tip (shown here: [link]) :)

No problem! C: That makes sense - the smallest star tip I could find in my craft store was much bigger D:

I might just go order that one online at some point XD

Thanks so much! :)

Question: how much would you change to make a custom Cupcake key chain from a photo. My Step sister got married last weekend and had cupcakes instead of cake for her guests. i would LOVE to give her a keep sake that matches her cupcakes!! :D

fairchildart Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2012
Thank you, I am so flattered you would ask me to make such a keepsake! I'm very sorry but I'm afraid a lack of creative time leaves me unable to take custom orders at this time (otherwise I would love to make something for you) :( But I would be more than happy to give you a list of polymer clay sculptors who do similar work and take commissions

well, thank you for the response. after thinking further into it. it was a nice thought but i don't think i would have the money to pay someone to make suck a keepsake anyways. lol Thanks again. :)
