I love the mushrooms, I will be making these more often!
I thought I had a lot more pictures about how I made these mushrooms! Sadly they weren't as I thought they would be, but I guess it gives beginners like me an idea about how to make them. Or I hope so! But they are cute anyways, right?
The white parts are made with fondant, an the red and green are made with marzipan, yumyum!
First we rolled out the marzipan and cut out a circle the exact size of the cupcake.
(sorry for the blurry picture) Next you make two balls with white fondant, then press your thumb and indexfinger on two sides of the ball. Next you start rolling the ball between your fingers. If you do it correctly it will look like the picture. You can make one side thinner than the other.
Then with red marzipan you make two red balls. Then you press your thumb in it and fold the marzipan over your thumb, like a little cap. Then with a little white piece you make the lower part of the mushroom cap, by filling it with white fondant. The lower part can be flat, or hollow.
Next put the cap on the stump and put little white dots on them, and voila!
The grass is made with a garlic press. Just make a ball and press it through the holes, then slowly take it off the press with a toothpick and put it on the cupcake.
Note: everything is glued together with pipingel, mixed with just a little bit of water. You can put it on a plate and use it with a little brush (like in the pictures)
