Fairy Birthday Cake 'n' Cupcakes

This cake is my first birthday cake request. I found covering the 10" cake with fondant was quite tricky for me...I think I took too long rolling it out so I got some fine cracks on the icing.
The cake was white chocolate mud cake then iced with white chocolate ganache then the fondant.
The decoration were fondant blossoms and the fairy too was out of fondant.
The request also included 6 standard sized cupcakes, so I used the same blossom design as the toppers.

CUPCAKERY TIP #2: If you don't have pretty butterfly cutters to create the fairy wings, another way is to use a 5 petal blossom cutter and remove 1 petal. Pair 2 petals and fan it out to create wings. Then use a smaller size 5 petal blossom cutter in a different colour glue it on to the larger wing to create the two-toned fairy wings effect.
