Today I’m going to show you how to make the cupcake, gherkin and watermelon
To start with the cupcake, roll out some brown fondant and cut out a circle
Cut out some triangles from the bottom of the circle
Using your fingertips, gently press the points to round them out and soften them and then roll out some blue fondant and cut out your cupcake case.
Using the top of a modelling tool, press down to flatten the top of the ‘cup’
Using a matchstick, make indents on the cupcake case
Paint some water on the flattened part of the cupcake case, stick the cupcake onto it and trim the case to size.
Once the cupcake has hardened a bit, draw on some chocolate chips using a black edible marker.
Next up, roll out some green fondant and lightly trace out the ‘gherkin’ shape
Cut out your gherkin and lightly mark it to add some texture.
For the watermelon… roll out some red/pink fondant and cut out a triangle
Roll out your green fondant and lay it next to the red triangle to measure up.
Cut out the rectangle ‘top’ to size and stick it to the watermelon using some water
Once the watermelon has hardened, mark in your pips.
One more tutorial to go, and then I promise I’ll be done with the Very Hungry Caterpillar … until I find something else to obsess over!!!
