Note that the title doesn’t indicate that this is the easiest way to obtain awesome custom cupcakes; that, of course, means dragging yourself down to the nearest shop and placing an order. But the second-easiest way to achieve, say, Pac-Man perfection, is to make your own cupcakes of any sort, and just slap these purchasable covers on ’em.
SugarRobot’s Esty store has all sorts of cupcake covers, from fancy little butterflies (edible!) to robots (awesome!) to the Pac-Man covers shown above. For ten bucks, you can cover a dozen cupcakes… but will you claim the work as your own? Tsk, tsk.
Using the covers sounds ridiculously easy: make your cupcakes, cover ’em with a tiny bit of frosting (think of it as delicious glue), and then apply the covers. It’s a recipe for instant cupcake success, and maybe if we make a big enough deal out of these, SugarRobot will roll out (and cut out) even more fondant designs.
