Princess Poppy Troll Cupcake Cake

This is how I made my Princess Poppy Troll cupcake cake made with 25 cupcakes pieced together in the shape of Princess Poppy Troll.  



Things you will need:
25 standard sized cupcakes
1 rectangle cake board
100 grams light royal blue fondant
100 grams light green fondant
25 grams white fondant
10 grams black fondant
20 grams pink fondant
2 disposable icing bag each fitted with Wilton 1M icing tips
2 cups pink buttercream
3 cups pinkish purple buttercream
pink edible glitter (optional for cheek blush)
1/4 cups royal icing
Americolour Electric Pink soft gel paste ( Princess Poppy's Face)
Americolour Violet soft gel paste ( Princess Poppy's Hair)


Tinting the buttercreams:

To tint the buttercream for Princess Poppy's face I added 4 drops of Americolor Electric Pink and 1 drop of Americolor voilet to 2 cups buttercream. Add more  drops violet soft gel paste to the buttercream until you get the colour that you wanted.   For Princess Poppy's Hair I added 4 drops of Americolor electric pink and 2 drops of Americolor Violet to 3 cups of buttercream.  Add more violet soft gel paste to hair buttercream until you get the colour that you wanted.  Transfer each buttercream to two different disposable icing bags fitted with Wilton 1M icing tips. set aside


Mapping out the cupcakes and piecing them to together:


Set the cupcakes in place with royal icing.  Apply royal icing at the bottom of cupcakes.
Icing the cupcakes:
Take your prepared pink buttercream piping bag and with it outline Princess Poppy's face.  (See diagram below).

Cover gaps between cupcakes in order to create smoother lines.
Notice how I did not follow the natural shape of the cupcake.  I filled in the gaps between two cupcakes hence creating smoother lines.

Which brings us to the next step fill in the outline area with pink buttercream.

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.
