I was reading a fairy tale book to my little one and it was so beautiful and colorful.
There were pictures of all types of whimsical creatures, including a very colorful snail.
So, I decided to make one out of fondant and it turned out adorable! 😀
To make these cupcakes, you will need the following supplies:
These are the instructions:
Roll a ball of purple fondant (about the size of a quarter).
Use your fingers to mold a weird tadpole shape like this…
Now, roll out thin pink and yellow fondant ropes.
Align them together.
Start rolling the ropes inward.
You should end up with this pink and yellow circle, which will be the snail’s shell.
You can also stick a white edible pearl in the center, if you like.
Stick it on top of the purple snail’s body with some water.
For the mouth, use a knife to make a little cut.
For the antennas, use scissors to cut two pink stamens.
Push them into the snail’s head.
For the eyes, use a black edible marker to draw two little dots on the face.
Let the snail dry overnight until it becomes hard.
Then, fill a piping bag with green icing and attach the gras tip.
Frost your cupcakes.
Place the snail in the center.
Stick a few flower candies on the grass.
And now you have a snail cupcake!
Well, I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
Happy caking everyone! 🙂
