Step 8

Take the Renshaw Vanilla Frosting and decant evenly between two bowls. Add a teaspoon of blue food colouring paste to one and a teaspoon of pink food colouring paste to the other and blend each until even.

Step 9

Fill a piping bag fitted with a star tip nozzle with the blue coloured frosting and starting from the inside and working out, pipe onto six of the cupcakes to create a swirl.

Step 10

Clean the piping bag and nozzle and refill with the pink coloured frosting, piping onto the six remaining cupcakes from the inside out.

Step 11

Roll out thinly the Renshaw White, Pastel Green, Pastel Yellow and Teddy Bear Brown Ready to Roll Icing on a work surface lightly dusted with icing sugar.

Step 12

Using a baby bottle, baby grow, rattle and bunny rabbit shaped cutters, carefully cut out the shapes out of your preferred colours.

Step 13

Use a different coloured icing to add a round button, rolled and flattened between the fingers, to the centre of the round part of the rattle.

Step 14

Mark button and collar details on to the baby grow using a sharp knife.

Step 15

Leave the icing to set, and once rigid, brush on edible lustre dust to create a shine or more intricate teat detail on the baby bottle shaped icing.

Step 16

Place the decorations on top of the frosting piped cupcakes.
