So, here it goes...this is the best idea I've had in awhile (well, at least I think so). :)
I love making cakes and while I love them to taste great, I like them to look even better. I love the look of fondant on a cake. It is stylish and allows you to make a cake look like almost anything you can imagine, kinda like a work of art. However, many people do not appreciate the taste of fondant. I am one of those people. Fondant tastes like marshmallow and it can be a little chewy. It's not that it tastes bad, I just prefer my cake to taste... like cake. You know, like a classic cake with regular frosting. Yum. But oh how I love the look of a beautiful fondant cake, so this is what I have come up with....Cupcake Toppers.
Cupcake Toppers are made of fondant. They just sit on 'top' of your favorite cupcake. A Cupcake Topper allows you the best of both cake worlds. You can have a wonderfully yummy classic cake piled high with your favorite frosting and the stylish look of fondant right on top. The topper is still completely edible, so if you like fondant...dig in...if you don't take it off, admire it, and set it aside while you enjoy your cupcake.
Here are a few of the ones I have made this week. Keep checking back because there are many more to come.
