Step 1

Bake and cool two-layer cake (trim layers to 1 1/2 in. high for a 3 in. high cake). Place on foil-wrapped cake circle. Ice sides smooth with yellow buttercream and ice top with white buttercream.

Use green FoodWriter to draw 16-loop e-motion border on cake top, with a loop at each division mark. Attach to cake top with piping gel. Cut a 5 1/2 in. diameter circle from Light Blue Sugar Sheets! Attach over white circle.

Step 3

Using Cupcake Pattern and black FoodWriter, trace cupcake base on back side (shiny side) of Light Pink Sugar Sheets! Cut out with scissors. Trace and cut cupcake top from Light Yellow Sugar Sheets! Use pink FoodWriter to draw pleat lines, about 3/8 in. apart.
