Introducing the Piranha Plant, (from Mario Brothers), Cupcake!  If you do this, I suggest that you only make one, and for the birthday kid/adult.  Because these take a long time and a lot of babysitting.  Oh, and...maybe you don't want to make it as scary as mine is.  I have no idea what happened, but it totally looks like the teeth are coming out of the plant's gums and it looks like a creepy mouth.

Okay, I was going to do the Little Shop of Horror's Audrey II, after I tried out this cutie plant.  But then I realized it would be redundant, so I settled for my bright-mario-killer-plant cupcake!  This is only my second time working with fondant, the first, being my husband's pimp stormtrooper cheesecake. I made marshmallow fondant because I read online that it tastes better, and they are totally correct.  I love this stuff!

The cool thing about it is that you can eat the whole thing, no warnings when you serve it.  I used pretzels for the leaves and plant stem.  I always utilize pretzels and their shapes when it comes to building with food because they are stable and taste good.  :)

Step 1: Be ready.

Have your cupcake made, have your marshmallow fondant ready, dyed and mold-able.  

For this you will need-----

Red, Green and White Marshmallow Fondant
2 thin stick pretzels
1 thick stick pretzel
some icing around the cupcake for fondant to stick
Piping Gel - to use as glue
toothpicks for piping gel
special cupcake <br />
nicely done
omg! PARAHNA plant! <br>
LOL that's cute (:
Congrats! I'll have to remember the tip about using pretzels... great idea ! My son saw these and was screaming MARIO!!!

Reeeeeaaally awesome. The icing job is perfect!!
Good job!
Awesooome, I actually like it that the teeth look so creepy:)))
So awesome! I only wish I'd seen this about a year and a half ago. I was in a production of Little Shop and I made Audrey II cupcakes for the cast party, these are so much more professional looking than mine were... haha. Beautiful work, I love them. :D
Great work, brilliant idea to use pretzel sticks, so it is safe to eat the whole thing!

I clicked the video expecting to see it come out of the pipe and chomp a few times and go back in lol. Very clever and well presented. Hmmm now I'm hungry...
There doesn't seem to be a recipe for the marshmallow fondant - is it something you have to buy? I have never seen it.

I will! I'd love to go old school but it's for a little boy who just got into Super Mario Galaxy, which is still cool. :) Beginning planning for that soon, right now working on pieces for a Barbie Mermaid cake for a friend's daughter. So much pink and bling but so far a lot of fun.

Oh wow. These are spectacular. Good thing there's no bacon involved, otherwise you might have broken the internet with sheer awesomeness.
