  • 1.

    Cover a Presto Dots armature ball, or a foam ball, with a thin layer of Model Magic® by pushing and spreading the modeling compound with your fingers. Model Magic that is fresh from the pack will stick to itself. Dried pieces can be glued together.

  • 2.

    Firmly place the covered ball in the Presto Dots cupcake wrapper, or make your own wrapper from cardboard or oak tag. To make your own wrapper, cut a strip of paper wide enough to cover the bottom half of the ball, and long enough to wrap around it. Make small folds on alternating sides of the paper to create an accordion fold. Wrap around the ball, secure with glue. Now you have the structure of your cupcake!

  • 3.

    Flatten a small amount of Model Magic to be about as thick as your fingers. Be sure to tightly cover the remaining Model Magic in the container to prevent it from drying.

  • 4.

    Press one of the Presto Dots tools firmly into the flattened Model Magic. Lift the tool, and press gently onto your cupcake. The Model Magic inside the tool will stick to the cupcake and form a dot! Repeat until the cupcake is completely covered with dots

  • 5.

    Use leftover Model Magic to create flowers, letters, candles, and other details to make your cupcake one of a kind!
