What is St. Patrick’s Day without Shamrocks? In my younger days, I can remember spending countless hours looking for a four-leaf clover. I say that, yet I suspect I tired after a few minutes and went on to some other more exciting tasks, like making necklaces from dandelions.
These cupcakes are part of a batch of cupcakes I made for St. Patrick’s Day. With the help of a Dogwood flower cutter, these shamrocks are a breeze to make.
- Green fondant
- Dogwood flower cutter
- Flower impression mat
- Gum Paste Glue
- Decorator’s paint brush
- Fondant roller
Step 1: Roll fondant to about a 1/4 inch thickness. Using the Dogwood flower cutter, cut one flower/shamrock for each cupcake.
Step 2: Add details with the help of the impression mat. This adds a little realistic like quality to the shamrocks.
Step 3: Roll the remaining green fondant into a snake-like piece. cut it into approximately 1 inch pieces. Flatten one end and attach it to the back of the shamrock using the Gum Paste Glue and a decorator’s brush.
Step 4: Allow to dry overnight to prevent them from drooping on the cupcakes.
Step 5: Place on top of iced cupcakes and ENJOY
