Christmas Cupcakes...A Trial Run

Today, I took my first step in experimenting for Kayden's birthday cake....I made and used my first batch of marshmallow fondant. The recipe was easy and quick! I used Kayden's preschool Christmas party cupcakes to conduct my experiment. I purchased plates and napkins from Target and used the designs on the cupcakes. I made six colors including white, and I was able to use my blue, red, yellow and green food coloring to get what I needed. All I can say is that the RGB color combos used in creating invitations/notecards came in handy! So, here is what I ended up with:

Overall, I am excited with how they turned out and I must say that I have a new found respect and love for cake makers; especially those that specialize in using fondant. I guess with the right tools, the task could have been a little easier, but I started to wonder about those intricate damask fondant patterns on wedding cakes. I am not sure that any tool is the right tool for that kind of job...that is PURELY skill. Let me know what you think.

Very cute! I have a newfound respect for candymakers after making truffles over the weekend. I am NOT talented at making candy!
