Harlequin Clown Cupcake Decorations

Harlequin Clown Cupcakes

What You Need

  • White Frosting
  • Frosting Tip # 3 (for eye slits)
  • White Chocolate Chips (for nose)
  • Round Cookie Cutter (it should be size of cupcake or smaller -optional)
  • Black Fondant
  • Red Fondant
  • Extra Cupcake Liners (for collar on clown)
  • Pretzel Sticks (to hold collar)

Cut out a half circle shape from the black fondant to make the clown’s hat. It’s okay if it isn’t perfect because you may have to shape a little anyway. To make it easier use a round cookie cooker and then just cut the circle in half. Place the “hat” on the top part of the cupcake.

Next, cut out 2 long diamond shapes from the black fondant and place where the eyes will be. You should also cut out a small circle and then shape it into a tear drop and place below one of your eyes.

Use the white chocolate chip as the clown nose. Take frosting tip #3 and fill in your eyes using white frosting. Use the red fondant to make the lips. This one was made by cutting out a heart shape on the top and then simply making the bottom part curved.

Next, insert the “collar” into your cupcake. Note: It’s okay if the pretzel is sticking out; this way your guests know to remove it before eating. Either way, it is edible too.

The pretzel will get soggy after a day so be sure to do this shortly before serving them to make sure they stay in place.
