Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Oven-Safe Work Mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Uncured clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately.
Start with clean hands, unwrap and knead clay until soft and smooth, or condition by running clay though a Pasta Machine. We recommend using a designated machine for clay purposes only. When working with multiple colors, clean hands with soap and water or baby wipes (we have found that baby wipes work best) before switching colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces firmly together. Wash hands after use.
Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 15 minutes per 1/4" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking; however please note that the baking times may take longer as the glass or ceramic surfaces take longer to heat up. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.
Marble pink yellow and white clay for the base of the cupcake and push into the cupcake mold.>
Mix together tan, yellow and white to make the cupcake color.
Roll into a ball and shape on your cupcake mold and add texture using a toothbrush .
Using chalk pastels you can shade the cupcake to your liking.
Create two holes for the eyes with your dotting tool and use two small black balls for the eyes. Roll out a thin log of black clay and shape the eyebrows and mouth.
For the frosting, use pink clay and pearl liquid Sculpey along with a couple of drops of clay softener. I used gloves to mix as this part can get messy! Repeat this step using yellow clay.
Add both colors to your piping tip and plastic bag, just as you would with real frosting. Pipe the mixture on top of your cupcake!
Add the eye pin and bake according to instructions.
After its cooled, pop your cupcake out of the mold and remove the eye pin, you’re going to add it back in through the bottom so it’s nice and secure. Create a loop at the top using your needle nose tool and add a jump ring. Now you can turn this cutie into a lovely charm for a necklace or keychain!
