Wilton - Punch. Cut. Decorate!

If you haven't heard about Wilton's new Punch. Cut. Decorate! products, you need to check this out. They sent me several products from their new line a few weeks ago and I've been itching to work with them. My son had his end of the year party at preschool and I decided to use Punch. Cut. Decorate! to decorate the cupcakes.

I wanted to make the cupcakes ahead of time, but didn't want to place the decorated sugar sheets on them too soon in case they got messed up. I went ahead and made the decorations the night before and returned them to the sealable bag so that they wouldn't dry out. I used my other buttercream recipe for the icing because this recipe doesn't "crust" or harden. I put the cupcakes in a cake taker in the refrigerator the afternoon before the event. The next morning I took the cake taker out of the fridge(I left the top on) for about an hour. The icing on the cupcakes still felt moist and fresh, so I didn't use anything to "attach" the sugar sheet decorations. If your icing is dry, spritz with water or use icing/piping gel to adhere. These are the products I was sent to work with. (Stay tuned for a giveaway!)

Before using, you need to take the sugar sheet out of the sealable bag and take it off of the backing.  The sheets smell just like buttercream and the taste isn't too bad!

The punches are so easy to use.  Simply put the sugar sheet in, punch down, and ta-da - a pretty flower!

There are so many incredibly easy-to-make decorations with the punch, cut, decorate products.  I used one of the border punches and rolled it up to make a flower.

I used the Foodwriter pens to draw on the butterflies. I used a little extra buttercream icing and round tips to make the centers of the flowers.

I used a few sugar sheets and had absolutely no problem; however, I had major issues getting this yellow one off of the backing. It just kept sticking and ripping. I lost about 1/3 of the sheet from it doing that.

Here are the butterflies that I made with it.


Evan wanted to put sprinkles on a few of the cupcakes, so I let him decorate too.  He was so proud of our cupcakes and couldn't wait to take them to school!  For extremely minimal effort, we got amazing results.  As Wilton says, "We make it easy, you make it amazing!"- this couldn't be more true.

Visit Wilton to learn more about their Punch. Cut. Decorate! products - there are even step by step instructions to teach you some techniques. Here are a few of my favorite ideas from their site.

Absolutely LOVE this idea! I'm not extremely creative so this would help guide me in ideas. I'm just a little worried how much the sugar sheets are. I'm also not a huge fan of the food writer pens, not as perfect as I would like. singnsk8(at)hotmail(dot)com.
