Graduation Surprise!

Posted by kel @ sweet treats at 6:31 PM
My friend Alison asked me to create some cupcakes for her sister Nicole who was graduating from a Diploma of Interior Design (what a cool course!) Of course I obliged.

I made vanilla bean cupcakes, topped them with fondant and packaged them in a cool gift box.

Congratulations and stripes:

Congratulations on your graduation Nicole!

Hey Ange,

I cut strips of fondant and then placed them next to each other. I then rolled them a little so they stuck together and then cut the circles of fondant to put on the cupcakes.

I think next time I'll brush a little water on the sides of the stripes so they stick together better, as they can fall apart easily when you're placing the fondant on the cupcake.
