Gum paste Easter bunny face
Wilton's gum paste
Bunny ears fondant cupcake toppers.
I used a cookie cutter to get
the shape of the bunny ears.
The cookie cutter I used was actually in
the shape of a bunny face but I cut it at the ears,
then I bent the tip of the ear.
No-fade cupcake cups.
Betty Crocker brand.
I allowed the ears to dry for several days
on a flat surface. The frosting is thick
enough to support the ears.

gum paste and fondant.
Unicorn toppers for birthday cupcakes
Sculpted by hand

The unicorn face and horn were both
difficult to sculpt but the hair was quite fun.
Unicorn birthday cupcakes!
The cupcake is golden cake
with vanilla frosting.
Wilton's white fondant, plastic wrap, wax paper,
paper towels, pastry scraper, toothpicks, small bowl of water (filtered),
small bowl of corn starch, Wilton's gel icing colors, glycerine (for the gel colors
that have become too thick with age), smal knife, cutting board, and chop sticks.
Tips for using fondant:
1. It is perfectly OK to use store bought fondant. I love Wilton's. I've only used Wilton's, and I've
never made my own fondant. You can find it at Walmart in the Wedding Supply section ($6.50)
or a craft store (the craft stores usually charge more for the same product.)
You can even order fondant online. I've never found fondant at Target but I
wish they would carry it! I ONLY go to Walmart for the Wilton's supplies.
2. You don't have to buy the special fondant tools.
I use 2 smooth and rounded chopsticks that I bought in the mall,
a small paring knife, (clean) X-ACTO knife or small knife, toothpicks, rolling pin,
regular cutting board and a small bowl of water.
You can use anything that works for you (and is food safe, of course.)
3. A light touch of water works like glue.
4. Use cornstarch to dust your board and hands to keep from sticking.
5. If you don't have cornstarch on hand you can use powdered sugar.
6. Let your fondant sculptures dry on wax or parchment paper.
7. After you have tinted a portion of fondant, separate the amount you need
at the moment and wrap the rest of it in plastic wrap so it does not dry out while you work.
8. Tint your fondant with gel colours. I use Wilton's but any brand will do.
9. After washing your hands dry them using a paper towel so you do not transfer
lint or hair to the fondant. Keep several paper towels on hand and within reach of your work space.
10. If your fondant has dried, rehydrate it by adding a few drops of water and kneading it.
11. Fondant is plentiful and forgiving, don't be nervous!
12. Do not refrigerate or freeze fondant or fondant sculptures. This will cause condensation which
will cause the fondant to melt.
13. If your gel colors dry out, add a few drops of Wilton's Glycerin and mix well.
