I am a closet steampunk. So when I was designing some steampunk cupcake wrappers to sell in my etsy shop, I really wanted to give these cute top hat toppers a go to use as photo props.
The original instructions called for using some edible paint for the goggles, which frankly, sounded like a big pain in the butt. So I changed it up a bit and used a “bit o’ honey” for the goggles and a vanilla tootsie roll for the lenses.
I really like the way they turned out. And I even created my own high heel spat topper design with the tootsie rolls I had leftover.
