Cupcake projects

Embossed blue cupcake

We have had the most fantastic warm summer weather. So standing in the kitchen with the oven on have not been on my agenda lately. But I have pulled myself together to make some cupcakes for a little cupcake project on the Cakes & More forum.

So I have made three different cupcake decorations 1. swirl. 2. embossing and 3. animals

The swirls did not turn out the best because the whipped chocolate ganache that I used did not like the heat and curdled alot.

For the sweet blue cupcakes have I used a small embossing stick from Holly Products. I topped them with small sugar roses and leaves. The sticks are also great to use on fondant decorated cookies. The cute little turtle is made out of modelling paste = ready made fondant about 8 oz. mixed with 1 tsp. of Tylo Powder and kneaded well.

But I have also another cupcake project comming up in fact I am just about to get started on it. I am in this group on flickr called Flickr Bake-off! where you can challenge another person for a “Throw Down”. Then you both decide what theme it should be and if it is going to be a cake, pie, cookie or a cupcake you want to make. You have about 14 days to make whatever you have decided and the photos then goes for a vote. All just for fun like it just should be 🙂

So I am a bit late so I will show you my results when the voting is over……. Oh btw the theme is “fairies” Wish me luck 🙂

Happy Caking!

    nizha: I would advise you to visit as they have a whole forum only with cupcakes. Im sure that your question have been asked before and you can find loads of recipes aswell. I have never tried to bake such a large number of cupcakes so I cant really tell you.

    Suzanne: I would go for the fondant disc. Poured fondant can be tricky and I dont think that you would enjoy any trouble with 200 cupcakes.

    I would use a thin layer of bc underneath the fondant discs. Depending on how thin/thick you roll it I would say about 2-3 pounds? but im not 100% sure. I always buy to much in the end.

    Good luck

    I must mae 200 cupcakes and have them ready for a wedding, frosting them all the day before. Which would be quickest and get the best result, using rolled fondant discs or dipping into poured fondant? Either look would be just fine. And how much should I buy of either, to ensure I have enough? I am not a much of an artist…
