I know what you're thinking right now ..why is she talking about butterflies, right???..these are Angle Wings, well that is how this cupcake came to life. I love making royal icing butterflies, they are so beautiful.Few weeks back I had this idea,
I thought I'd make Christmas Butterflies, I still might do that, but it occurred to me that Angels would be a better fit for this Joyful Season.
I made Egg Nog Rum Cupcakes..recipe can be found here. They are super delicious and really festive too.
Now we are going to concentrate on How To Make Angel Wings.
They are not as complicated as they look. Before you start I recommend you visit my Royal Icing Butterflies Tutorial, it will give you an idea of how to make these.

Royal Icing Recipe
- flood the wings with flood icing( for the correct consistency, check out my Video Tutorial)
-once flooded, let dry completely
- when dry, pipe the details using outline consistency royal icing, let dry
-when piped details are dry, paint them with luster dust, visit my tutorial on Luster Dust for HOW TO
-last step is to connect the wings and dry them on the angled drying rack
below you can see I only "glued" bottom part of the angel wings.
