I kept my crown designs very simple, adding “DAD” to a few, but you can get as elaborate as you’d like by adding candy jewels and cutting more intricate designs. I sprinkled some gold luster dust over my frosted cupcakes, just to add some sparkle.
Chocolate Crown Cupcake Wrappers
optional: silver luster dust
Use a diamond or triangle cutter or a knife, to cut the points along one edge of the modeling chocolate strip in order to create a crown. Brush gold luster dust on both sides of the modeling chocolate crown. Wrap the modeling chocolate crown around the cupcake, attaching the two ends together using a small amount of corn syrup or melted chocolate.
Optional: Cut “DAD” out of modeling chocolate using mini alphabet cutters. Brush with gold or silver luster dust and arrange them on the frosted cupcake or attach them to the crown using corn syrup or melted chocolate as “glue.”
Store the modeling chocolate crowns at room temperature. The crowns will harden a bit, but you will still be able to bite into them. They will stay fresh for up to several months if kept in an airtight container. Do not refrigerate the crowns as they can become sticky and wet.
