Winter is here! I am super excited for the final season. If you are a fan of Game of Thrones, you know you have to mentally prepare yourself for what is to come. But, no matter how much you prepare they’ll find a way to screw with our emotions!

To make the cupcake toppers I used vegan fondant found at AC Moore in the US
Vegan butter referenced in the recipe is Earth Balance. Different brands may behave differently in the frosting.
