The creative blogger Jeniffer Paxton from the sugary blog The Lone Baker created these stunning Year of the Dragon Cupcakes in anticipation for Chinese New Year on January 23rd. While the cupcakes are no doubt lush and delicious snuggled in their vibrant sleeve, the dragon topper steals the show through sheer craftsmanship. The massive fondant structure had to be hand-molded, assembled from various small parts and painted using edible gold lustre dust.
A true show-stopper, these Year of the Dragon Cupcakes are full of flourish and drama. Carefully crafted with a keen eye for detail, this whimsical cupcake topper marks a high in Paxton's career as a cupcake artist. The perfect high-profile addition to any dessert table, these lime light-seeking cakes will make your New Year event a veritable hit.
Beautiful, dramatic and incredibly impressive, these Year of the Dragon Cupcakes are for those party planners who want to make a serious splash.
