Piggy Face Cupcakes
Another post from the lovely Jaime...
A while back Miss D and I were at a loose end one afternoon when I found a packet of cupcake mix and some leftover fondant in the cupboard. These Piggy Face Cupcakes are what we came up with :)
Mix up your cupcakes and whack them in the oven...easy. Next colour your fondant (we used a smidgeon of Sugerflair's Christmas Red paste) and knead it in. Sprinkle a little icing sugar on your board and roll out the fondant, I turn it a bit after each roll so that it doesn't stick. One of Miss D's juice glasses was the perfect size to stamp out my Piggy faces. Roll the leftover fondant into a long sausage and cut wedges to be the piggy nose.
Stick the noses to the faces and make two nostrils with a toothpick. I used SilverSpoon's Writing Icing black to dot on the eyes.
Cut the tops off the cupcakes (if you need to) to make them flat.
And use a bit of buttercream icing to stick your Piggy Faces to the cupcakes. A few sprinkles of edible glitter makes them super sparkly.
So quick and easy to do and a real kid pleaser which makes it a winner in my book :)
