Decorating the Twin "Cupcake CAKES"

Decorating the Twin Cupcake CAKES

My mom made the cakes using the cake pan seen in the pictures below.  One cake was Vanilla for Paige and the other cake was Chocolate for Meghan.

1.  After baking and cooling the cake - begin by leveling off each half so that the top of the cupcake fits nicely on the bottom.

2.  Make your frosting (we made a butter cream frosting - not to be confused with pure butter cream).  Spread the frosting on the bottom so that the top will stay in place.

3.  Dye some of the frosting (if desired) and begin decorating or piping the bottom portion.

4.  Gently place the top onto the previously frosted bottom.

5.  Now frost the top (we purposely made it look rough so that it really looked like a cupcake)

6.  Finally top with fondant shapes & designs.  I dyed my own fondant & then rolled it out & free hand cut the flowers and leaves - if you don't feel confident "free hand cutting" then make a pattern on wax paper first to use as a guide when cutting.

ENJOY!!
