My 3 Monsters: Crossing the Finish Line

Crossing the Finish Line

Done. Finito. Fin.  I made it!!  The wedding cupcakes are done and delivered (with much less drama than I half-way expected).  It all went of without a hitch.  Here's a closer look at each of the three styles:
. . . loving the stamped fondant monograms . . .

. . . my personal favorite . . .

. . . and the yellow.

But the piece de resistance (photographed with my phone when the camera died). . .

The giant cupcake for the bride and groom to cut.  I don't have a Big Top Cupcake mold so I just had to wing it with what was on hand -- a 6 inch round cake pan and a Pampered Chef large batter bowl. And a truck-load of buttercream frosting.

I was so impressed with the marshmallow fondant.  It was my first time ever even touching fondant, let alone making it from scratch, but it was really easy.  All the decorative pieces are made with the fondant.  They're imperfect, but I think that adds to the charm.  Anyway, that's what I had to tell myself after rolling out those yellow frames for the monograms three different times trying to get perfectly round, perfectly centered stamps.  Whatevs.  It's done.  I'm happy.  The bride and her family are happy. It's a dang good day.  Later I'll post my marshmallow fondant recipe and some pointers I learned along the way if anyone is interested.
