DIY Fondant Roses on Cupcakes for Children
Fondant roses are pretty and even children can make them beautiful. Circles are the secret, circles lined in a row.
Making Fondant is one of the most beautiful ways to decorate a cupcake. It’s just gives a cupcake or even a cake that bakery feel.
Premake the cupcakes!
I like to premake the cupcakes from the box directions. Or you can buy pastry shells at the store to prepare for this activity. If you are super mom or you want a two day lesson children will be more than happy to help you bake the cupcakes or cake. Once you have finished mixing the oil water and eggs with the boxed cake mix and followed all the rules. Take your ready made cakes to the learning area! A fast way to cool down the cupcakes is to put them in the freezer. Strait from the oven stick those piping hot fluffy cakes pan and all in the freezer for twenty minutes. To make the fondant put a bag of marshmallows in a large bowl and put in the microwave for 30 seconds. As soon as you take the bowl out of the microwave pour on confectioners’ sugar onto the marshmallows. Mix the marshmallows and confectioners’ sugar together and add any food coloring you like. When thick enough mead the fondant with your hands, dusting them with confectioners’ sugar so they won’t stick.
To make the fondant flowers roll tiny balls of fondant. Then press the balls in a row together. Finally roll the fondant into a rose. Set aside to harden.
To pipe icing onto the cupcake place icing in a plastic bag and cut a small hole on the side to use it as a piping bag.
