Fondant Cut Outs for Cupcakes

When I first started out I had several classes for kids.  On one class I took out some fondant and showed the kids how to color fondant using a toothpick and gel food coloring.  The fondant was just like play dough and kids are expert when it comes to that.  Next everyone rolled out their fondant and using cookie cutters cut them for their cupcakes.  While the fondant is still soft I showed them how to gently insert a toothpick into the fondant so that we could stand up their creations.  For the bunny they used the grass tip and some confetti flowers.  I had several different types of sprinkles and the kids added MM’s adding just a little bit of icing to make if adhere to the fondant.  For the babies I showed them how to take a toothpick and a little bit of food coloring gel to make the eyes and smile.  We found the hearts in the left over sprinkles from Valentine’s day basket.  After 1/2 hour you can stand up the fondant shapes and add them to your cupcakes.
