Mini Cupcakes for a birthday boy


Classic back-to-basics cupcakes for a special little boy:

Mini vanilla cupcakes with swiss meringue buttercream frosting 
and marshmallow fondant alphabets.

(What a mouthful for a so-called 'basic' cupcake. LOL!)

Hi NEL, can I check where did you buy the alphabets from? thanks

Hi Yummy Koh,
I made my own marshmallow fondant and stamped the letters out using cookie cutters. So far, I've not come across anywhere in Sg that sells ready made alphabets.

I also saw the letters at Hearty-bakes but hers is chocolate. Thanks, very nicely done.

WOW! Very pretty :) Next time I must also use marshmallow for the lettering. Can I keep the marshmallow in the fridge after the cut out?

NEL, the batter baker said...

Anncoo,
It's best not to store the cut-outs in the fridge, cos when you take them out, the condensation will cause the fondant to soften and make it difficult to handle. I've left cut-outs in the open for weeks and it dries and stiffens nicely. The sugar in the fondant preserves it, so it won't go bad. Just stack them in layers with parchment/wax paper in between.

Thank you very much for the info. :)

The blue colour of the letters are so outstanding in the very white frosting. Your boy must happy to see these cupcakes.
