These cupcakes are Perfect for Weddings, Sweet 16's, Birthdays, Showers and can be gifted to someone special! :)Things you will need:
Cupcakes (Of course :) )
Large round piping tip
Red Color (I used Wilton No-taste Red)
Flower Former Foam
Water for gluing the fondant pieces
Smooth Working Surface
Shortening for greasing your hands
Trays, Flower Former for drying flowers etc
The fondant that is used EXCLUDING in covering of cupcakes, has been mixed with gumpaste 3:1 (3 part fondant and 1 part gumpaste), you can use Gum-tex or Tylose instead of gumpaste.
After mixing colors in fondant, leave it to rest overnight or for 24 hours.
Use cornflour for dusting your work area and also for dipping your cutters before using them.
Freeze cupcakes for about an hour after icing.
When drying the fondant pieces, keep them on cornflour dusted plates or trays.
When making roses, let the bud dry completely before covering with petals. And then let each ring of petals dry after pasting to bud. Otherwise the rose will fall apart.
Roll fondant 1/16 inch thick for covering the cupcakes and 1/8 inch thick for everything else.
I have done my best to include each and every step. And I hope the photos are quite clear to understand :)
