The weddings past had left me a good amount of fondant trimmings. I might as well use it before it goes past its prime. And that's what I did. I made chocolate cupcake for turn down service the other day. The cupcake was plain and boring. I had plenty of time to spare so I turned the simple cupcake to a perfect treat.
To enhance the flavor, I cut a hole in the middle of the cupcake using a round piping tip. I filled the hole with strawberry jam. I didn't want to serve it with the hole exposed so I thought fondant could do the trick.
I rolled out the fondant. I pressed down with the flower cutter and removed the cut-outs.
I brushed the top with a little strawberry jam to attach the flower cut-outs on the cupcake.
I tinted the little trimmings left with strawberry red. The color turned pink when incorporated. I cut out small circles and put it in the middle of the flower.
Looked way better before the decoration.Tasted great too!
