Use royal icing and your favorite fruit leather to take your cupcakes from casual to formal.



  1. Dip tops of cupcakes in royal icing, letting excess drip off, then let stand until set. Unroll fruit leather, and cut strips 1 1/4 inches wide and 6 inches long. Fold ends in toward the center, forming a 3-inch piece. Cut another strip 1/4 inch long and 1/2 inch wide. Wrap strip around center of folded piece, scrunching to form a bow. Press on top of cupcake, seam side down. Repeat.
