I made these cupcakes for the Kindergartner's "Q&U Wedding" a couple of weeks ago. Every year the teachers put on a wedding for the letters "Q" & "U". It is a fun way to instill the fact that they are forever united as they start to read and write. It's a kooky event, but they love it! After the wedding in the cafeteria, the students all go back to their classrooms for a reception.
They were dressed in their best wedding attire, had snacks, and danced...a lot. It was a great day and our family was able to go and spend the day with Aaron at school.
I found a chocolate/soap mold online for a couple of bucks and used that to create the cupcake toppers. It was SO easy and quick. I thought they turned out darling and they were a huge hit with the kids and teachers. Much more so than if I had used picks.
I used a 2D Wilton top for the icing. Another easy technique with great results. I was able to make 24 cupcakes, frosted and topped with chocolates in less than 2 hours. Not too bad!
I'm not sure what I'll use this mold for in the future, but it is so cute I'm sure I'll find a reason to pull it out again!
