Sofia the First Cupcake



I was inspired by doll cakes that is so popular right now.  I thought it would nice to make miniature versions of them in the form of cupcakes.  The little Sofia dolls are made with fondant.  Her eyes are hand painted using black gel food colouring. The white dot details on her dress are painted on with toothpicks using white gel food colouring.   Sofia's tiara are just 3 silver sugar pearls that I attached using clear pipping gel.

Decorated my cupcakes with a classic swirl pattern and sprinkled it with
white sprinkles or white sugar peals.
Used BBQ skewers to hold the head and torso together for added support and
anchors figurines in the cupcake.  Make sure stick goes all the way down
to the bottom of the cupcake.  Dried the whole set up overnight for easy hair
installation.

The Sofias are ready for their make up.

Using pink pearl dust on Sofia's cheeks to add a bit of colour on her cheeks.
I also brushed a bit of pink pearl dust on her hair, arms and dress.

After painting her cheeks I draw on her eyes using toothpicks.  I like using
toothpicks because it creates thinner lines than edible markers.

then her mouth

I also added some dots on her bodice.

Finished!

Olaf Rice Crispy Sculpture

Build a snowman in the summer with rice crispy treats and buttercream.   I can't say I miss the snow because I am perfectly happy with this warm weather.  Just in case, here is one way to make a snowman in the summer.  But before that here are some pics from my niece's Frozen themed birthday party.



Here is how I made Olaf....

You will need:

3 preparations of rice crispy treats (found in any Rice Crispy cereal box)
about 150 g brown fondant
60 g orange fondant
250 g black fondant
250 g white fondant for eyes, teeth, and cheeks
1 preparation of shortening base buttercream
3 large bamboo BBQ sticks
1 foot bendable florist wire
toothpicks
gardening sheers

Make Olaf's head first since this will determine the size and the proportionality of the whole sculpture.  The recipe found in the Rice Crispy cereal box is perfect amount to make Olaf's head.  Use the microwave method to make a chewy and more malleable rice crispy treats.  Let the treats sit for a maximum of 8 minutes…

Pilipit - Filipino Twisted No Yeasts Donut

Pilipit is a Filipino style donut.  It has a crunchy outer shell and a soft inside.  It is similar to bannock or elephant ears.  These are similar to donuts and leavened with baking powder.  Traditionally coated with sugar or glazed

I coated mine with powder sugar kind of like their elephant ears counter part.  But you know what they are perfect on their own without sugar.  The dough is sweet enough to hold on its own.  


The ones that I made are for some reason soft on the inside.  I'm certain it's because I rested my dough for more than 30 minutes instead of the usual 15 minutes.  If you guys want more crunch in your pilipit just proof it (resting stage) for 15 minutes or less.
