Ribbon Cupcake Week - Black Forest


Wednesday's cupcake is dark and mysterious..

Black Forest Cupcake

Layers of chocolate, whipped cream and maraschino cherries....ooooooooh! holding back today this is a "full on" cupcake!


* Polystyrene ball approx 6cm diameter
* Glass headed pins black and red
* 10mm Black Grosgrain HERE about 2.5mtrs
*10mm Red Grosgrain HERE about 2.5mtrs
*10mm Black Gingham HERE about 2.5mtrs
*10mm Red Gingham HERE about 2.5mtrs
(note to chef - you can use any flavour ribbon from here and here)
*Cup cake cases


1.  Cut the ribbons into lengths of 10cms and tie a knot in the centre of each ribbon.

2.  Pin a ribbon to the top of the ball.  If you want to see the pins use the opposite colour to the ribbon.

3. Hold back the first ribbon and pin in a different colour ribbon.

4. Keep adding ribbons one at a time, working around the ball.

5. Continue adding ribbons until your ball is covered and will sit in the cupcase without the ball showing.
