- Don't let this stuff get warm, it's too hard to work with, no matter how much you think it will help.
- Have very sharp instruments on hand, it's a pain in the butt to cut when it gets warm.
- Make sure you use a dense, heavy cake mix. My cupcakes were too fluffy and just wanted to squish when I put the fondant on.
Luckily I only made one set of cupcakes and saved the rest of my batter for this weekend. (Either I would have eaten them all or ended up throwing them in the floor and stomping them out of frustration.) I only made one with the fondant covering it. I really think they are just more for looks than taste because the fondant is heavy....it just doesn't go well with the traditional kinds of cake I'm used to.
Luckily for me I didn't put fondant on all of them, that way I could eat one. (Or two!)...(Okay, okay, I had 3. Plus one at 3 am when I got up to get Drew's bottle. It doesn't count if you eat it in the middle of the night.)
