For my good friend’s bridal shower I decided to make these elegant cupcakes with a fun Wall-E cake topper. Both my friend and I have a strong affection for the movie Wall-E so I knew she would love this custom topper.
Both Wall-E and Eve were hand molded out of fondant and then an airbrush was used for the detail. I actually bought a Wall-E and Eve toy to use as a model for the fondant versions.
I made a fondant heart with “True Love” written on it in royal icing as the backdrop for the famous robot couple. The cupcakes themselves were two flavors, white chocolate with milk chocolate ganache, and chocolate with cream cheese frosting. My friend loves pink so I used that as the color scheme with pink cupcake wrappers and pink and white sugar borders on the cupcakes. I also made the double heart and engagement ring cupcake toppers out of royal icing that was then painted with luster dust. The bride’s engagement ring is a diamond flanked by two pink sapphires so I tried to match that.
