I was all excited to do the cupcakes for my cousin. Just bought a set of butterfly embossers, so i thought of giving fondant a try. ha ha... OBVIOUSLY, my hands are not meant to mess with fondant! or maybe because i used the ready made ones, so it's not tough enough to handle.. i think the ready made fondant (i used pettice) was fine, until i decided to make choc ganache as the base (konon nak lagi sedapla..). the ganache was soft when i put the fondant pieces on it. it was all pretty and happy at first..
until.... the next morning..
apparently the fondant melted! my lovely ribbons (that was my first attempt making a ribbon, ingatkan dah terror dah! haha.. rupernye fail!) also melted. no i didnt put them in fridge, but the room where i kept the cupcakes was definately not warm.
so being a buttercream genious as KG labelled me (seriously i dont deserve it KG, but i'll take it anyway! hihi.. tq!) i was quick to cover up!
so the pink rossettes saves the day! lucky i had some ready made roses so i just cucuk sana sini and did the simple rossettes...
so the conclusion is; i am just so comfortable with buttercream.. i am not ready to explore fondant yet. not now. maybe next year. maybe, if i have enough guts :-P
have a great day friends!
