My granddaughter wants monogrammed disks placed on the frosting on top of the cup cakes for her wedding reception. Any suggestions on what to use to make the disks out of? Fondant is so hard and doesn't taste good so I was hoping there is something else that might be tasty.

AModeling chocolate or chocolate disks.

Thanks for the response. I mentioned to another granddaughter about the modeling chocolate and she said it is very soft and has to be handled with a spatula. I was hoping for something that we could make ahead of time. Maybe I'm expecting to much.

Well, maybe the other suggestion will work better for you.  Use a chocolate disk on the cupcake.  Take some chocolate and melt it then spread it to the proper consistency by hand or by using two sticks in whatever height, say 1/8" to spread it between the sticks as a guide on top of parchment paper.  Then before it sets completely use a cutter to cut the disks and once it hardens carefully roll the parchment paper on the edge of the counter to remove the disks. 


Hope this helps

AMarshmallow fondant is easy to make and tastes better than the regular store bought kind, maybe try that?

Thanks for the suggestions ladies. I may try both options out and see which will work the best for me. I do know from using it in the past that marshmallow fondant is rock hard when dried but is easy to work with.
