Boob Cupcakes ~ Guest Blogger
Censored view .. uncensored view below
Hello to all you “A Cup Full of Cake” readers -
A few weeks ago, Shanna asked me if I would be interested in doing a guest blog as soon as she saw my boob cupcakes that I made for Mr. UPS (the UPS man) at my friends store. What a perfect month for it, October, Breast Cancer Awareness month!
If you can roll a ball of fondant, you can make a boob, or two, or three. Simply roll two equal balls of flesh colored fondant. Use a straw and cut out a tan circle, place on top. Make a ball out of a pinch of fondant and place that on the tan circle that you made with the straw. If you want to do some tattoo art, use Americolor dye, dip a toothpick in the dye and go start doing the tattoo. I find that Americolors are much easier to work with. It doesn't take as much dye to make rich colored fondant & frostings. One of my favorite tools I own is my Cricut Cake Water brush, only I fill mine with vodka. Vodka dries quicker than water and prevents the fondant from getting gummy. I use this as a glue instead of gumpaste glue.
Thanks, Shanna for allowing me to share with your readers! I hope you all enjoy these boobs as much as Mr. UPS did.
