Hi Everyone,

So, I have a bride that is in love with cupcakes for her wedding. But she doesn't like the look of them with a buttercream swirl. I've seen cupcakes on here with poured fondant that gives a beautiful smooth coating on the cupcake. However, everything I have read about poured fondant is literally pouring the fondant over the cake/petit four etc. Isn't that crazy messy? How do you keep the fondant from dripping all over the cupcake liner? Do you dip them? Anyone have any tips on this? I want to do a trial run this weekend to see what's best.

Thanks!

mrswendel, I pour mine, but I do them as petit fours so there aren't any cupcake liners. This tutorial that newcakebaker references is great. I have had it bookmarked since I first tried poured fondant. I think one of the keys is in not getting the fondant too hot.

Good luck!
