I have an order for cupcakes to go along with a gum ball machine theme birthday party. Does anyone have any ideas other than putting gumballs on top??? Help!!
. . . are you interested in bubblegum roses . . . I can hook you up with a tutorial if you are . . .
how about coins on the cupcakes for getting the gumballs from the machine. Or a wad of chewed gum (pink mm fondant)....funny and gross at the same time.
dragonflydreams - Yes the bubblegum rose tutorial would be great. Thanks!
. . . http://tinyurl.com/ygskwj . . . or you could also do this type if you didn't want them that "realistic" . . . our very own aine2 has this video tutorial
or yet another type http://www.cakejournal.com/?p=41 . . . or Duff roses would also work http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1149096.html
you can also use starburst candies with the same results (they maybe better simply from the color perspective) . . . you would have to warm them alittle (in the microwave) to make them pliable enough to work with . . . and you wouldn't need the pasta maker per say . . . but it would definitely make your job easier
good luck . . . and have fun . . .
