Inspired by a girl who loves to bake !! Fondant cup cakes

I got this inspiration from "The Journal of a girl who loves to cook" (I think she should have changed to a girl who loves to bake !!), immediately I bake this cup cakes today. I spent the whole morning to do my 1st sugar paste/fondant cup cakes, I'm so satisfied with the result, so I can't wait to share with your.

- Hallo, am I cute?

I will think twice if I will do this again, really not an easy job (my daughter did few of the bears and also the Christmas hat), this is something like doing art works, must have 2 P (patient and passion). Thus I will suggest you to buy this kind of cup cakes from "Delectable" or any other bakery shops.

I was adapted sugar paste/fondant recipe from "Twister" , but this sugar paste will turn very dry once it expose to air. Anyway, Thank you very much to "Twister" for your kind sharing.

Sugar paste recipe ( Please refer to Twister's blog for detail steps):-

water 60g

gelatin 1tbsp

liquid glucose 1tbsp

Icing sugar 500g

Corn flour 20g

1. Mix water and gelatin on a bowl, and place the bowl over a pan with water and heat up the pan.
2. Once gelatine dissolves, add in the liquid glucose and mix well, remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
3. Add gelatine mixture into Icing sugar and corn flour, knead till smooth dough.
4. Wrap with cling film and place in a airtight container until ready to use (prefer to store 24hours before use)

As for the cup cake, I use "fluffy chocolate cake" recipe.

Do enjoy Baking !!!
