“Indescribable feeling!”

If there are any movies from my childhood that I can remember with crystal clarity, they would definitely be Disney’s Beauty & the Beast and Aladdin. And no, it’s not just because I am a mega Disney fan (guilty as charged: I’ve watched those movies hundreds of times!). It’s because their story really resonated with me, even as a wee little one.

You can only imagine how thrilled I was when I heard about Aladdin’s upcoming live action remake this year. Now, it’s time to ring the alarm: its grand theatre release has arrived! To celebrate, I whipped-up these Aladdin-Inspired Cupcakes with my very own Princess Jasmine cupcake toppers.

How to Make Your Own Aladdin-Inspired Cupcakes with Princess Jasmine Cupcake Toppers

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • Edible sparkle dust
  • Teal gel food coloring
  • Violet gel food coloring
  • Golden yellow gel food coloring
  • Buttercream frosting

Coloured fondant to make Aladdin-inspired Princess Jasmine Cupcake Toppers

Step 1: Cool Down

Stop and wait! Before you even consider decorating your cupcakes, you have to make sure that they’re completely cool to the touch – otherwise, all of your decorations will melt off!

Step 2: Color Your Fondant

Divide your fondant – you’ll need to separate it into one 4 oz. spheres and two 2 oz. spheres.

Color one of your 4 oz. fondant spheres with your violet gel food coloring and the other, with the teal gel food coloring. Your remaining 2 oz. should be colored with yellow gel food coloring.

Step 3: Start By Making the Base

Roll out your purple fondant with a rolling pin until it’s about ¼ of an inch thick. Use a circular cookie cutter (about 2 inches in diameter) to cut out 12 fondant circles.

Step 4: Make Jasmine’s Beautiful Headband

Now, it’s time to roll the teal fondant. With a rolling pin, roll out the fondant so that it’s ¼ of an inch thick.

Using a paring knife, cut out 12 strips, about 3 inches wide and ½ an inch thick.

Place one strip on the center of each purple circle, giving it a slight arch. Press down to secure and trim excess where necessary.

Step 5: All Those Jewels!

Time to make the shiny stuff!

Roll your yellow fondant into ½ inch spheres – you will need 12 of them.

Slightly flatten each yellow sphere and shape it into a teardrop. Give it an indentation in the center.

Press one yellow fondant piece on each headband, right in the center.

With your remaining teal fondant, roll out one dozen ¼ spheres.

Flatten each sphere slightly and place one on top of the yellow portion of the headband.

Step 6: All That Sparkles

Lightly brush the edible silver glitter on the fondant jewels.
