Jim Henson’s Labyrinth is one of those films that makes people of a certain age flip out. In the right group, you can’t mention the name of the movie without all those present telling stories about when they saw it or discussing favorite their characters. The fact that the movie was released almost 30 years ago doesn’t matter. Instructables user cakesprite clearly still adores the movie and came up with cupcakes featuring Sir Didymus, The Worm, Ludo, and Hoggle. Seeing them makes me want to host a Labyrinth theme party (Jareth costumes would be encouraged).
The baker rates the process of making these cupcakes as easy, and she may be right, but you’ll need patience. A lot of it. Cakesprite used sugar paste in several colors, jam, and white royal icing to sculpt the miniature faces. Creating the cupcake toppers looks a lot like playing with clay.
She used a few specific cake decorating tools to push the sugar paste into shape. She shows photo pictures for each step of the way, and since the how-to is so thorough, I feel like I could actually do this. It mostly seems to be about adding the details bit by bit; she’s done the brunt of the hard work figuring out the template and uploading images. The worst thing that could happen if you tried your hand at crafting this designs is that they would look ugly – that doesn’t make the cupcake any less edible.
