Birthday cupcakes

Lil’ C turns 4 yesterday!!! Wow, I really can’t believe it! My little girl is growing up too fast although I must say that I really love this age the best. Sure we have our tantrum and fussy days but I really love the thoughts, imagination & words of a 3/4 year old. Growing up the youngest in my family & leaving home at a young age to go off to school, I never really grew up with younger kids, so this is a whole new experience for me. I have learned that it is very interesting to see the world through a 4 year old’s point of view. : )

Oops, got sidetracked a little. Back to food for now. I have actually been stuck in the kitchen for the last few days “experimenting”. What have I been doing? Playing with cakes, buttercream, fondant & sugar paste. I really feel like a mad scientist now. This week I have to make 2 cakes, one for Lil’ C’s party this weekend & one of Lil’ C’s best friend who is one day younger than her. More on the birthday cakes next post.  Besides that, I also made some cupcakes for Lil’ C to bring to her preschool. 

Birthday Cupcake with marshmallow fondant

These are butter cupcakes covered with marshmallow fondant. I decided to go with fondant instead of buttercream because it is less messy to eat and to transport.

All packed up & ready to go!

i think it looks very nice! =)

may i know what did you use to make the flower buds?can marshmallow fondant be used to make figures and shapes too?


Thanks! Yes, I used marshmallow fondant to make the flower bud. Marshmallow fondant doesn’t really harden fully, so it is not advisable to use if you want to make figurines. I usually use marshmallow fondant for little flowers but for figurines, I use sugar paste. Hope that helps.

I use the embossing mat from Wilton.

Definitely very adorable. Did you just put each in a little plastic baggie? How long do these last? I bet she loved it!
