Can someone tell me how you make the top of the cupcakes so perfectly round and then put the fondant on? Like in this picture.

It appears to me that there is some sort of icing under the fondant. That is what I would do, because it would be hard to get uniform matching cupcakes each time. HTH!

I just round the tops of the cupcakes off with a sharp knife and then use a little buttercream or ganache to smooth over the crumbs. Works wonderfully and people always ask how it's done! Gotta love tricks of the trade! icon_biggrin.gif

They show this in the book Planet Cake. They put ganache on top of the cupcake as frosting and shape it into a mound shape. Then once the ganache hardens, they put the fondant on top.
