Beauty and the Beast Cupcakes
These simple cupcakes are tasty and delicious!
- 12 of your favorite vanilla cupcakes
- ½ stick butter, softened
- 1 cup icing sugar
- 1 tbsp milk
- 7-9 oz. yellow fondant
- 1-2 oz. Kelly green fondant
- 1-2 tsp red gel food coloring
Ensure your cupcakes are cool to the touch before decorating.
Using an electric mixer, beat together butter, icing sugar and milk.
Once the ingredients are well combined and form semi-stiff peaks, use an offset spatula to apply a thin layer of buttercream on each cupcake.
Using a rolling pin, roll out your yellow fondant so that it’s about ¼ of an inch thick.
With a round cookie cutter (about 2 inches in diameter), cut out 12 yellow fondant circles. Place on top of each cupcake.
Roll out 12 spheres from your green fondant – about ¼ of an inch in size.
Roll each sphere so to be thin strips – they will act as your rose’s stem.
Press one fondant stem onto the center of each cupcake.
Pinch out 24 small spheres from your green fondant and shape them into small triangles. These will act as your rose’s leaves.
Place two leaves onto each cupcake.
Tint your remaining buttercream with red gel food coloring and place in a piping bag with Wilton frosting tip #74.
Frost each cupcake with a small dollop of red buttercream. Serve and enjoy!
