This is my latest attemp in working with fondant. These are supposed to be Shaun the Sheep cupcakes, but I'm happy for them just to be generic sheep cupcakes. They were inspired by ozcake's amazing Shaun the Sheep cake that I found on Flickr.
Things I've learned since last time:
- You only need a gentle touch while smoothing. I was using a bit more pressure when trying to smooth out my wrinkles and it wasn't working to well but as soon as I lightened my touch the wrinkles disappeared!
- Cupcakes are much easier to work with than big cakes.
- Working with black fondant is much more difficult than white fondant. Plus, remember to wear gloves or it turns your fingers black.
- Don't skip the hot-knife stage of ganaching. It really makes a difference.
