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. :)
