I wanted to make cupcakes for dear daughters class. Instead of buttercream I wanted to try fondont. How do I do it? I have not idea. Bummer!

Hi. This is how I do mine. When the cupcakes are cool, I apply a thin layer of buttercream, then apply a circle of fondant.HTH.

Don't worry it's pretty easy, much easier than covering a cake in fondant in my opinion icon_smile.gif

Just roll out the fondant and find a circle cutter that is a similar size to the cupcake and cut out the fondant. Then just put some buttercream like seaqueen said to stick the fondant to the cupcake, or in my case my cupcakes are pretty moist so I just put it on stright away (or you can use sugar syrup to make it stick). Then just gently rub the sides to make the fondant shape around the cupcake...

Hope that helps icon_smile.gif

I do mine exactly like Seaqueen. You can use a circle "tart" cutter to get a fun scalloped edge too. Very pretty.
