These are just my go-to chocolate cupcakes with chocolate buttercream frosting, which I used to adhere the fondant. I bought the fondant this time because I just wanted to play with it and get a feel for it before I invested the time into making my own.
So, while these entertained me for the evening, I’m not particularly happy with them. They’re kind of fun, but certainly not what I was hoping for. I’ve decided to go with a filled cupcake of some sort for the baby shower, which is definitely more up my alley.
