Requirements

You will need a fat quarter of fabric, a cupcake case and a little flag or topper. Boxes of cupcake cases and toppers are available from supermarkets and discount stores for just a dollar or two.

Cupcake case and topper

Step 1

Open the fat quarter. You will notice that it’s not square — there is a long side and a shorter side. Fold in half by putting the two shorter sides together. This means the longer sides have the crease. Now fold in half again. Continue folding another two times until you have a long strip. (Four folds in all).

Step 2

Fold the corner of one end on a 45 degree angle and roll up the strip. Roll firmly but you don’t have to be neat. Don’t worry about the puckers and bunches, they give the cupcake it’s character. Use a pin to hold it together.
