Fondant is like edible play dough for cupcake-ers…
The first time I was introduced to fondant was while planning my wedding, but let’s just say that I wasn’t a fan of the taste (I think I spit it out!) so we went with buttercream instead for the big day. Now that I am on the other side, the baking one, I can see the versatility of fondant with making some truly amazing edible artwork. I could stare in awe all day at the pictures I’ve found online. I knew that eventually someday I wanted to get my hands “dirty” and join the fun.
I always peruse the cake decorating aisle at my local Michael’s craft store. Last weekend I did a double take and 3 steps back as I was just passing a box of pre-made 4 pastel colored fondant. I figured why not? and took it home with me. Its been sitting in my kitchen pantry, wedged between my cookie cutters and a variety of sprinkles, taunting me to come play. Well… today was the day.
Its nothing too complicated – just a round cookie cutter and alphabet letters but I think they came out pretty cute for my first time! Don’t you think?
Obviously these are for my good friend, NB. Her favorite color is pink and I am pretty sure pink and green were her wedding colors but… don’t quote me on that! I wanted to make her a special cupcake b/c she encourages all my crazy food related projects with her beautiful sarcasm, wit and advice. She is the queen of peer pressure and likes to drunk text me on occasion but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Everyone should be so lucky to have a friend like her. ::cheese::
… and off they go to their new home.
