Covering the tops of cupcakes in fondant gives them a clean, smooth surface for additional decorations. Fondant covered cupcakes are great for weddings, bridal showers, or any other event. Dress up ordinary cupcakes with fondant for an elegant and classy look.
Step 2: Roll fondant out to about a 1/8″ thickness.
Step 3: With a round cutter the same diameter as the tops of the cupcakes, cut out fondant pieces. (3″ round cutter usually works well for standard sized cupcakes)
Step 4: Place a fondant circle on top one of the cupcakes. Cover the other fondant circles up with plastic wrap so that they do not dry out. Use your fingers to press the fondant onto the cupcake.
Step 5: Use a fondant smoother to smooth the tops of the cupcakes.
Step 6: Add embellishments to the tops of the cupcakes. Attach decorations with a small amount of piping gel or edible glue.
