"Two Peas in a Pod" Cupcakes
Ingredients
  • 12 vanilla cupcakes completely cooled down
  • 5-6 oz. green fondant
  • ½ cup butter softened
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
Instructions
  1. On a clean surface, start preparing the peas in a pod fondant shapes: roll out green fondant so that it’s about ¼ of an inch thick.
  2. Using a 2 inch circular cookie cutter, cut out 12 circles. Set aside.
  3. Roll 24 ½ inch spheres from green fondant.
  4. Place two spheres in the center of one circle and fold over the top and bottom, surrounding both spheres. Pinch both ends.
  5. Repeat to make 12 pods.
  6. In a large bowl, beat together butter, sugar and milk with an electric mixer. These ingredients will make up the buttercream.
  7. The buttercream is ready once all the ingredients are well-combined and form semi-stiff peaks.
  8. Scoop buttercream into a piping bag with a round icing tip.
  9. Frost the center of each cupcake.
  10. Place one fondant pea pod onto the center of each frosted cupcake.
  11. Take small strips of green fondant and curl them on random spots of your cupcakes.
  12. Serve and enjoy!
