Cupcake Wars

After watching allot of food network shows especially cupcake wars, I have been wanting to bake some cupcakes. I used pinterest to come up with ideas for cupcakes. I deiced to also experiment with creating marshmallow fondant. Let me just say that it is not as easy as it looks. Fondant can get really sticky and with the confectioners sugar it get all over the place, but it was really fun being able to decorate the cupcakes.

This is for the marshmallow fondant, it super easy to make but it is a little messy.

Microwave the 2 cups of  marshmellows for 1 minuet.

Then begin to sir in 2 cups of confectioners sugar

Knead the fondant like pizza dough until it's not sticky, add more sugar if it's still sticky.

to add color add two drops in to the fondant  and knead it untill the color becomes uniform.

 Sprinkle a cutting board with sugar and roll the fondant out , then use cookie cutters. 

The final result

      All done!

Have a great day y'all!
