Check out these barnyard cupcakes I made last weekend. How cute are they? I made them for a toddler's birthday at a local farm. They look like they would take a long time to make, but this isn't the case. I made all the fondant pieces the night before and kept them wrapped them loosely in saran wrap. The next day, I baked and iced my cupcakes and then topped them with their beaks, eyes etc. These days cake decorating is so popular that you can often find already colored and packaged fondant. But, you can always do it the old fashioned way by dying it yourself.
I made three different kinds: Lemon (Baby Chicks), Strawberry (Pigs) and Vanilla (Sheep, Cow, Chicken). I finished the sheep with mini marshmellows to look like wool.
