Horse Cupcake Topper

Hand piped chocolate horses on top of strawberry cupcakes swirled with strawberry buttercream

I made these equine cupcakes for a co-worker for her birthday. She, like me, loves horses. The horse cupcake toppers are chocolate and the cupcakes are Martha Stewart’s strawberry cupcakes with strawberry buttercream. They were so light and tasty! The only drawback is the frosting will melt if it is too warm in your car, which I learned the hard way with some leftovers 🙁

Horse Cupcake Toppers

  • 1 12 ounce bag chocolate candy melts
  • 1 12 ounce piping bag
  • wax paper
  • outline of horse (either hand drawn for from clip art)

Melt candy melts according to the directions. If you have a disposable plastic piping bag, you can melt the chocolate right in the bag, if not, fill piping bag with the melted chocolate Snip the teeniest tiniest end off of the piping bag. Place wax paper over the image you want to outline. Carefully trace over the image with chocolate. Fill in the outline if desired. I chose to fill in the outline because the horses’ legs were extremely fragile. Allow to dry for several hours or overnight.
