sweets!

28 Aug

In an effort to live up to this blog and the lovely sweets featured here in my banner and beyond, I spent some time this lovely Saturday making a version of the decorated cupcake.

I was inspired by Clockwork Lemon, I decided to try my hand at DIY Marshmallow Fondant.

DIY Marshmallow Fondant

I had to use a LOT of powdered sugar to avoid stickiness!

I couldn’t get the red color I wanted with my wimpy food coloring drops, so I enlisted some red sugar.Fondant and red sugar

Then I piped some frosting onto my chocolate cupcakes, and TADA! I’m very proud of them.

Seriously, yum.

And the money shot.
