I’d like to show you how to make the mini party food from fondant that I had on Molly’s Gruffalo Cake. You’ll find it is really simple to make the food and it’s something you could use on a wide variety of cakes, such as a teddybear’s picnic 🙂
Start by rolling out some red and white gumpaste/sugar paste (fondant mixed with a hardening agent like tylo powder) very thinly. Stick the red onto the white and then stick another thin layer of white on the top
Roll out chocolate and white colours medium thickness and stamp out circles before sticking them together
Roll out a sausage of yellow and cut some small circles for the cupcake cases
As you can see – I’m simply brilliant at rolling out an even sausage of fondant!!!
Using a toothpick, gently make the imprints into the side of the cupcake case and then attach to the plate
Add small pink balls and an edible pearl on top
Make a thick circle of light brown colour and using your finger, flatten in the middle to make a small bowl shape.
Stick some red fondant into the middle of the bowl
Roll out some light brown very thinly and cut strips. Layer them over the pie in a lattice style and then cut at the sides.
