The other 15 were needed for the letters of the names. For these cupcakes, I decided to use the technique I used when making Isabel's Hello Kitty cupcakes last year.
|Melt some frosting in the microwave for 5-10 seconds. Stir. Dip your cupcake|
upside down in the icing.
|Allow for the extra frosting to run off a bit.|
|Leave them be to dry for a bit. Ta Da!|
I love the "ganache" look to them. While they dried, I started making the fondant letters for the names.
After placing them on the cupcakes, I used a bit of water on a paint brush to brush away the cornstarch I used to prevent the fondant from sticking to the letter cutters. These will be placed around the cake, with the other cupcakes in between.
