Following on from the Hippo cupcakes are Panda Bears… these are really simple to make and look really effective.
Begin by rolling out some white fondant and cutting out a circle the same size as your cupcake. Paste some apricot/hot water mix over the cupcake and stick your white circle on top.
Roll out a ball of fondant for the panda’s mouth and flatten.
Mark 4 dots using a toothpick where the mouth is going to go, and then indent lines for the mouth using a blunt knife.
Roll out a small ball of black fondant for the nose and then straighten to form a triangle. Glue onto your mouth and then glue the mouth onto the cupcake.
Roll two balls of black fondant into ovals and flatten and then attach to the cupcake.
Roll out and flatten some smaller white balls to go onto the black eyes, and then some tiny black balls as pupils and stick to your cupcake.
Roll out 2 black ‘sausages’ for the eyebrows. Glue onto the cupcake and then make 2 indentations next to the eyebrows for ears.
Roll out 2 black teardrop shaped pieces and then glue into the indentations you’ve made on the cupcake.
Gotta love a scrunched up ‘camera smile’
