|Used Wilton tip 1M to create the rose pattern on the cupcake. Start pipping from|
middle cupcake and out.
| You will need 3 different sizes of round cookie cutter (3", 2.5, 1 inches, white fondant, grey fondant (goggle frame), light brown fondant (iris), and black fondant, large ball tool, and piping gel. Cut out a 3" circle out of grey and white fondant. Set aside in large ziplock bag. Cut out a 2.5" circle in the middle of the grey circle. This will be the frames for the minions goggles. With a small brush apply a small amount of water along the perimeter of the white circle. Lay down the grey frames on top of the white circle. Using a ball tool (See pic bellow) make an indent on the bottom centre of the white circle. Place the brown 1" circle in the dip. Make a 1/4" ball and place in the middle of the brown circle. To create the look of glass on his goggles brush a small amount of piping gel all over the white fondant and eyes. Do not apply piping gel on goggle frame.|
This is the ball tool I used..
|I used the larger ball of this Wilton ball tool (purple) to make the indentation on the white fondant and the smaller|
ball to make the indentation in the middle of the iris.
