MATRIX CUPCAKE TIPS
- Use Dollar Sweets Black Fondant to make the black disks. Cut the block in half (you will only need half) and on a clean work surface, knead until soft and pliable.
- Black fondant is easier to work with in small portions. Cut fondant portions to about 30g each, roll into balls and flatten into a disc.
- Working one portion at a time, place the disc between two sheets of baking paper, and use a rolling pin to roll out the fondant to a 2mm thickness. Use a rolling motion in one direction only. Do not roll the pin back and forth as this will create creases in the baking paper. Once you reach the desired fondant thickness, use a fondant smoother to smooth any creases.
- Remove top sheet of baking paper and use a cookie cutter (same size as the top of your cupcakes) to cut a neat circle in the fondant. With the cookie cutter in place, pull away excess fondant and discard.
- Place the fondant in a cool, dry place to harden (do not refrigerate). This can take a few hours to overnight, depending on the weather.
- Once hard, the fondant discs can be used as cupcake toppers.
- We used The Creative Kitchen Ready to Roll Coloured Fondant Multipack to make the red and blue tablets.
