Hi! I'm going to make matching cupcakes to a confirmation cake; I'm going to try embossing the fondant and putting a fondant daisy on top. I tried this yesterday and LOVED it, but tasted it and it was good, but needs 'something'. Do some put like a BC between the fondant and cake or a jam? Would that be the 'something' I am missing? Cake is WASC chocolate and fondant is Fondarific BC.
I don't know what anyone else would do but I would want some buttercream between, and maybe even fill them? If you fill them you would only need a little BC on top. You could also add some extra flavoring to the fondant to give it a bit of "kick"!
Hi! you can put more filling in them by removing part of the center using an apple corer. Don't go too deep though. Fill the hole with ganache, buttercream etc. , and spread some on top, then place your fondant circle.
I always give my cupcakes some buttercream frosting under the fondant, just like you would crumb coat a cake before you apply the fondant.
