Fifty Shades of Grey Cupcakes with Fondant Toppers

Everyone is talking about Fifty Shades of Grey, aren’t they? I have not read the book nor watched the movie, but I was sure excited when these cupcakes with the toppers were ordered recently for a party. The toppers are all made out of fondant mixed with a little tylose powder. I drew the templates on a piece of cardstock and used that to cut out the neck ties, masks, and handcuffs out of fondant. The book and the keys were made by hand. The toppers were painted in silver food color diluted with a bit of vodka.

  1. These are so naughty yet so cute!! Your attention to detail never fails to amaze me!! I don’t know anything about tylose powder…does that help to stiffen the dough? Love these, awesome job!! 🙂

    • Yes Bonnie…tylose powder or Wilton gumtex when added to fondant in small amounts makes the fondant stiff enough to mold figures out of it. It also helps in drying and hardening of the fondant faster.
