I’m so proud of these little cupcakes. There’s room for improvement certainly. Next time I would use a slightly larger cutter to cut the piece of fondant that covers the top of the cupcake. I would also knead the black fondant a little more before modeling the cat too, just to get a smoother body. I have to admit to having had the packet of black fondant in my cupboard for slightly too long so it had gone a little hard around the edges, even though it was sealed in the packet.
I actually made 9 cupcakes but only managed to decorate three of them. Little Miss Spice was decorating the other ones and of course she kept trying to get her hands on the ones I had. When it came to eating them, as always she chose to eat the ones I’d decorated and I ate the ones she’d ‘decorated’.
