Cirque du Soleil: Saltimbanco Cupcakes

Cirque du Soleil's Saltimbanco has stopped in Toronto at the Air Canada Centre. For the occasion, we made cupcakes for a group of friends who watched the show last Saturday with us. With this in mind, we designed chocolate toppers in the shape of performers on green icing. Enjoy!

1. Melting milk chocolate for the cupcake's Cirque du Soleil performer toppers.

2. Milk chocolate needs to be tempered at 116°F and then cooled to 80°F.

3. Piping the chocolate figure onto wax paper.

4. A delectable and graceful performer.

5. Vanilla buttercream and chocolate cupcake.

6. Cirque du Soleil performers leap across the buttercream frosting.

7. A performer dancing on frosting.
