Making the Fondant Pumpkin
Step 1. Mix 2:1 of white Gum paste & Orange fondant by stretching and folding. And, continue kneading gum paste until thoroughly blended into white.
Step 2. Roll out the colored fondant.
Step 3. Find a cookie cutter or fondant cutter to cut a desire size of your pumpkin. ( use cutter can help to have the equal size of pumpkins) it’s okay if you just cut it by knife.
Step 4. Roll the fondant into a small ball.
Step 5. Use No.4 of Gum paste tool to create the Pumpkin lines. (You can use toothpick to replace the tool)
Step 6. Use tiny cookie cutter or fondant cutter to cute several small even pieces of brown fondant.
Step 7. Elongate one end of the gum paste ball to form a tear drop shape.
Step 8. Roll out the green fondant and cut it into small rectangular.
Step 8. Put some gum paste gel into the orange pumpkin & insert the brown fondant and green fondant on top of it.
Step 9. Set aside until the fondant dries out. (around 30 mins to 1 hour)
Making the green grass icing
Step 1. 1/2 cup of ready to use icing
Step 2. Drop couple dips of green gel coloring into the icing
Step 3. Stir them together until the color is well blended.
Step 4. Put the green color icing into the decorating bag. (using tip 233 to create grass shape icing)
Step 5. Squeeze bag with light pressure & pipe a circle of tip 233 pull out shaggy petals on top of cupcakes
When you have your grass cupcakes ready, you can put your little pumpkins on top of these cupcakes!!
Of course, you can choose different cupcake cups to have different looks!
My cupcake is vanilla flavor, I think baking a pumpkin spicy flavor will be more fun for this cupcakes! (I will do that for Halloween party!!)
