Alright so now I had my concept but how was I going to pull this off and deliver it an hour away?!? I knew I needed enough cake to feed 20-25 people and that it had to be easy to serve. Fail-safe, pull-apart cupcakes. They can make an entrance, keep cost reasonable, they travel well and are so simple to serve a group. after some research, a lot of brainstorming, and several hours of work, a star was born! I think it came out great!
To make this I took 24 confetti cupcakes and put them on a board in a rectangle and I topped them with vanilla buttercream. I hand cut black and white fondant to make the tile floor. While that was all setting in the fridge I started working on the tub and unicorn.
e To make the tub I baked confetti cake in a loaf pan and trimmed it down to get the bath tub shape. I then coated it lightly in buttercream and covered it with white fondant. I made a rolled fondant boarder around the top to give a bit more depth. I made the shower head and water controls from sugar paste, and painted them with edible gold dust. I cut rice crispy treats and covered them with fondant and edible gold dust for the feet of the tub. Tucked under the tub is a bit of rice crispy squares to help support the tub and keep it elevated off the "floor". I hand sculpted the unicorn from fondant and sugar paste. After placing the unicorn where I wanted her I filled the tub with blue buttercream. I topped it off with sugar pearls, chocolate pearls, bubble gumballs, sprinkles, wafer paper stars, glitter and edible gelatin bubbles. The unicorn duck is also handmade from fondant. I used fondant cutters for the letters and finished it all off with edible wafer stars and edible gold dust. The birthday girl was ecstatic! and I had a blast making this!
Living on a shoestring and making the most of the lemons
Life is not easy, we all know this by now, but life is what you make it, no matter how corny that sounds (rhymes and all). Some days you can't wait for them to just be over and others, why can't they last longer. So let's make the most of it, make the shoe string budget as long as you can and make the best darn lemonade you've ever had!
