This is a wonderfully delicious way to say welcome home to a soldier. Although it totally looks like a sheet cake, it’s actually made of strawberry cupcakes. Everything is edible. The dog tags are made of fondant which I spayed with silver edible color spray. The image is an edible image I designed and had printed at my local bakery. The letters are made of melted vanilla wafers and colored with edible spray and food color.
These are a delightful and delicious treat for a baby shower. The cupcakes are red velvet, Key Lime and strawberry. I made the fins by melting vanilla wafers and putting it into a mermaid fin mold. I used edible color spray and glitter to add additional colors.
At 1st request for these for a baby shower, I was inclined to not do them because I did not think they would look like unicorn horns. I went searching for ideas and finally just made them as I had seen them done by others. I used fondant to make the horns.
I had a lot of ripe bananas so I froze them until I found time to use them in a recipe. I found the recipe on Pinterest and it was a great choice. These cupcakes are moist and full of flavor. I frosted them with banana cream cheese frosting and garnished them with cinnamon sugar and a mini vanilla wafer.
The cupcake flavors this year were Carrot topped with candy trees, chocolate topped with holiday sprinkles, key lime topped with lime candy pieces, and strawberry topped with a candy strawberry.
