Adorable Buttercream Panda Cupcake

 Oh yes, it had to be done!


After I fell hopelessly in love with last weeks adorable grizzly bear cupcakes...


I knew I had to make more, they were just so darn cute!


I decided to make an adorable buttercream panda cupcake.  The design was very similar to the grizzly bear only this time I used half a dark chocolate button for each of the ears, piping over them with black buttercream.  I also added the eyes first, after applying only a thin layer of buttercream to the cupcake, I then built up the bears face around them.


The cuteness is killing me!

Astral - I ADORE those teddy bear and panda bear cupcakes. Any chance of a tutorial ? Oliver would be half way to heaven if he got his paws on those.

I know you're awaiting our new macaron mats. Any chance you can help me with a video tutorial ? I've got no where to do one... If so, I'll give you a call next week and maybe we can work something out when you have some spare time ;-P

Thanks Hun! I'm a working hard on my book at the moment and the grizzly/panda bear cupcakes will feature in there so I have to keep quiet on the tutorial front lol.

Also I'd love to do a Macaron tutorial for you, I'm desperate to get my hands on one of those mats but I no longer have access to a video camera, hence no tutorials for a while.

Space isn't an issue but filming these tutorials takes forever so you do need to rope in a very willing camera person, I lost mine to bigger better things lol.

Call anytime to have a chat about it anyway. X

You have outdone yourself with the panda bears... Having the fur over the eyes makes them will loveable.
