I baked some cupcakes yesterday and was thinking of different ways to decorate them. Instead of putting a layer of fondant on top, why not wrap the whole cupcake with fondant ? So I decided to make some cactus in pots. Search the internet for some pictures of cactus and I started making these at 7.00 this morning, finished around 10.00 am. Quite time consuming considering I only made 3 pots. Anyway, here’s how I did it.
First, cut the bottom of the cuppies to resemble a pot shape. Then, wrap them with strips of fondant to make the pots.
Once done, cover the top of the cuppies with round green fondant.
Start making the first cactus.
For the white spots and thorns, I piped some buttercream using a round tip.
Coloured the pot using some piping gel to create the glaze effect. (the outline of the flower should have been much thinner).
For the second species of cactus, I made this shape and then poke some holes on it.
Use the same technique to create the thorns. Added two cute flowers. Below are the completed projects.
Anyway, hope this lesson has been useful. Take care & bye for now.
