Cupcake Baker turned Royal Icing Confection Creator

CakeArt by Christy began in 2010 when I started making cupcakes for my family and friends. Coming from a culinary/ fine art background I wanted to create every aspect of the cupcake from scratch, I then began experimenting with royal icing decorations. The original idea for my Etsy shop was to offer cupcake kits complete with everything to make a particular cupcake design, excluding the icing and cake. Over time the decorations won out so now I primarily focus on royal icing flowers and toppers. Save time and add a professional touch to your next dessert with these handmade lovelies. Thank you for visiting my shop!

    I have a culinary and fine art background. I love being able to blend the two while making my royal icing creations. Thanks for visiting my shop!

I am an artist and a baker. Royal icing my favorite! I'm here to share my fun, edible and handmade decorations with you! Perfect to top cupcakes, mini cupcakes, cake trim, or to spice up a cookie or cake pop! Add an extra professional touch to your next sugary creation.

Royal icing is made of sugar, meringue powder and water, which dries into a hard, crunchy candy. These are great to order ahead of time as items store for years if kept dry and away from light. A cabinet or pantry is perfect.

Apply your royal icing decorations as close to serving time as possible when using buttercream icing or any high moisture item, as it will absorb the oils and liquid.

Please check with me if you'd like a different quantity or a special request! Prices will depend on the flower type and how many colors you'd like. $10 minimum on custom orders and colors. Custom Order will take 2 weeks for processing.

If you have an excess of broken items please take a photo of the items and the entire packaging and send it to me when letting me know of the mishap.

Additional policies and FAQs
*The glitter (Disco Dust) used for making "Sparkling" Decorations is listed as "For Decoration Only" . I purchase it from a cake supply store, their label reads:

"These beautiful and bright glitters will enhance and add great sparkle to any of your projects. Great to sprinkle dry or add to icing or fondant while wet for a more concentrated sparkle. They are classified as "non-toxic for decoration only" so they may be best suited to decorate items that can easily be removed from the cake."

The glitter is very fine and I use it lightly, but I'd be happy to make any item without glitter or a different sugar pearl. Choice of "glitter" or "no glitter" available at checkout.

*The Metallic Dragees are as classified as "For Decoration Only" I have alternatives if needed.

CUSTOM ORDERS: All custom orders ( brand new item, not already in my shop) will require a $20 design fee. Once the fee is paid I will present the idea with an example photo and price estimate within 1-2 weeks. 12 piece minimum per design item.
