princess and the frog cake

i made this cake for a friends little girl last week. i know it's not a cupcake, but i still decided to post it :).

i used a heart shaped pan to bake the cake layers. i cut the tip off the heart shaped cake pieces to make the cake look like a lily pad. i covered the cake with light green fondant and brushed on some edible shimmer dust to add a nice glittery princess shine. the flowers are fondant and frosting. my friend bought the characters at the disney store.
