Step 1

Using a cupcake wrap as a template cut an edible version out of rolled out covering chocolate! You can choose whatever color you like from the ChocoPan by Satin Ice covering chocolate range. We opted for white as it was such a bright and airy color... perfect for a fairytale castle.

Tip: Covering chocolate can be stiff at first so you'll need to warm it up and make it more pliable. You can do this using your hands or microwave small amounts for around 5 seconds.

Step 2

Now you can use a small sharp knife to create the battlements along the top. Make sure these are nice and even. Start by cutting a few millimeters in at regular vertical intervals then slice away horizontally!

Step 3

With an angled palette knife coat the sides of your cupcake with buttercream.

Step 4

Carefully wrap the sides of your buttercream covered cupcake with your covering chocolate wrap! Don't worry if you need to snip a little of the chocolate at the back away. Now smooth down. If you want a little sparkle you can dust with some edible lustre!

Step 5

Roll out a little pink covering chocolate and press with a wood grain impression mat. This is going to become the tiny castle door at the front of your cupcake!

Step 6

Using a sharp knife and a circle cutter (or the bottom of a large piping tip) cut away sections of your wood grain covering chocolate to create the door.

Step 7

Lightly scour down the middle using the back of your sharp knife to create double doors. Attach using edible glue and then gently add your edible pearls as the doorknobs.

Step 9

Roll out a little white covering chocolate and cut into a triangular shape to create the flag.

Step 10

Attach to a toothpick by gently folding the chocolate over and pinching. Then carefully shape the flag for a fluttering look! Insert into your cupcake and add sprinkles too!
