Hello fellow bakers - I need to know a good technique for covering cupcakes with fondant for a wedding. I have seen the poured technique has anyone tried this? Does it look completely smooth? or should I be thinking of covering them with something else to make a smooth covering. They will be decorated as dotted swiss with a bow. Thanks in advance - Donna "Nanacakes"

Hi, I always use fondant to cover my cupcakes. I ice the cupcakes with a bit of bc (that works as glue for the fondant to stick) and then cut fondant discs to the size of the top of the cupcake (I use normal pastry cutters to cut these discs). Then I stick the discs on the cupcakes and rub the top with my palm. There are few cakes that I did in my photos if you like to see. icon_smile.gif

Hi, when it comes to cupcakes, I bake and decorate them a day ahead. I do this as I want them to be as fresh as possible. Since they are small cakes, they tend to dry out quicker than a big cake. But I know you can freeze cupcakes and hope someone who does this would help you out. icon_smile.gif

You certainly can make them on thursday (but I would make them on friday) and store them in cake boxes. icon_smile.gif

i have a question...will the fondant stay soft after 1 or 2 days or it will become hard? Covered fondant cupcakes look really pretty but do people really eat the fondant or they will take it off?

They don't go soft. They will be a bit hard, but not too hard. SOme people do eat the fondant and some don't. Its a personal preference. icon_smile.gif
