I was asked to make Monte Carlo themed cupcakes recently for a display. Quite a challenge but I ended up having so much fun making Monte Carlo inspired playing cards, dice and casino chips. The colour scheme was black, red and white and the cupcakes were a hit.
HINT: I made playing cards in different sizes and then used little icing hearts to complete the cards. They are easy to stick on with Tylose which is an edible glue.
