Golden Age of Death Cupcakes for Amber Benson

When Amber Benson has an event, the people that attend aren’t just Buffy fans, they are fans of her Calliope Reaper-Jones novels too!

Calliope Reaper-Jones is literally Death’s daughter and she has become the head of her father’s company: Death, Inc. The newest book is the last of the series and is titled “The Golden Age of Death”. Amber asked me to make something ‘golden’ so I used a few unique things to make these cupcakes gold but appropriately death like, in the sense of the book, that is.

The signing and the cupcakes was a big success! You can find all of Amber’s work online and follow her on twitter.

Golden Age of Death Cupcakes for Amber Benson

Ingredients:

mini vanilla cupcakes
mini chocolate cupcakes
gold sanding sugar
tiny edible stars
edible Sugar Sheets

Instructions:

Bake and frost the cupcakes and sprinkle with gold sanding sugar and edible stars.

For the lettering, the Wilton product Sugar Sheets are much like edible images except they come in a solid color and you punch out desired shapes.

I made my own template by printing out the letters D E A T H I N C.

Using a burnisher I pressed down and outlined the letters onto the Sugar Sheet. Then I used a clean X-acto knife and cut out the edible letters.

I placed them on frosted cupcakes to convey the Death Inc signage.
