For the cupcake tower I had to make 80 (yes 80!!!) chocolate sponge cupcakes topped with vanilla buttercream and 4 different toppers. The recipe used was from the Crabapple Cupcake bakery book, yummmmmm.
Here's the clown modelling paste keepsake I made, initially he was meant to go with the cake, but in the end it looked too "busy" so I decided he would look better on his own on the cupcake tower. He certainly was big enough to feature as the main topper on the tower.
