Last year I made a set of St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes. Since I was not able to post them right away, I saved them for this year.
- white fondant
- yellow fondant
- fondant roller
- ruffled circle cutter – 2 inch
- gumpaste glue
- Alphabet mini cutters (the letter “U”)
- ball tool
- gold airbrush paint
- food grade, paint brush
- green sugar sprinkles
Step 1: Roll white fondant to about 1/4 inch thickness and cut out a ruffled circle base for each cupcake. Sprinkle with green sugar and eet aside.
Step 2: Roll yellow fondant to about 1/4 inch thickness and cut a letter “U” for each cupcake. Using a small ball tool, make impression into the letter.
Step 3: Using gold airbrush paint and paint brush, apply a thin layer of color to the horseshoe to add a little bling. Allow to dry.
Step 4: Attach the horseshoe to the fondant circle with gumpaste glue.
Step 5: Bake a batch of green cupcakes (I use Pillsbury Funfetti Vibrant Green Cupcake and Cake Mix). Top with white frosting and add fondant topper.
