Thank you everyone for your great feedback on my Cupcake on a Cupcake blog posting. I have to put together a tutorial below so that you too can make these SweetThings at home for your family and friends. They will love them! Especially if you use chocolate fondant as it tastes exactly like a tootsie roll.
What you'll need:
Chocolate or Dark Brown Fondant
A little bit of red fondant
Wilton Flower Cutter 0.75" diameter
Small Rolling Pin
Small Paintbrush and water
Round 0.75" diameter cutter
Step 1:Roll out chocolate fondant to 0.25" thickness. Use the 0.75" diameter flower cutter to cut as many as you need. Optional: If you do not have that cutter, use a 0.75" diameter round cutter. Use the ball tool or the side of your small paintbrush to create ridges on the outer side of the round cut-outs. Set aside.
Step 2: Roll the pink fondant into a log and cut into 0.5" equal pieces. Roll each into a ball and use your fingers to shape it into the top of a cupcake.
Optional: If you prefer a swirl on your cupcake and have a sugarcraft gun, then use the plate that looks like "rope". Make rope out of the pink fondant and then swirl it around to make the cupcake swirl. Add a dab of water if it doesn't hold. Set aside.
Step 3: Assemble all the pieces. I also like to use the flower cutter to make an impression on the top of the cupcake.
Step 4: The last and final step - Place on a fresh and newly iced cupcake. Enjoy this Sweet Thing!
