I am doing hockey puck cupcakes and want a smooth black top so I can pipe the kids hockey numbers on the top. Not sure what kind of icing you would use?? Is it poured fondant... any recipes would be great!! Thanks

I have some cupcakes in my photos that have smooth fondant tops. I just iced them in buttercream and then using a cookie cutter, cut out circles of fondant and just placed them on top. Easy peasy.

that looks great. I want something i can do a couple days before and freeze.. or even the day before, so that my husband can take them to the hockey party, since I will be at a retreat all weekend.. you can't freeze fondant can you?

I have frozen fondant and slowly defrosted it and didn't have too much trouble. I have used a poured fondant recipe from Peggy Porchen where she adds a little corn syrup and melts the fondant some to dip the cupcakes into a few times to make them smooth and shiny.

thanks.. I will try that this weekend and see how it holds up to being frozen for a few days

I've done the method of microwaving canned icing then dipping the cupcakes in. They dry smooth and lovely.

Royal Icing works great as well it dries hard and smooth
