Black and White Cupcakes

This was for a friend's birthday. I recently bought printed cupcake liners and I used it to select the colour scheme of the decorations.

I also dont cover cupcakes woth fondant but since buying the Planet Cake book by Paris Cutler, I thought I would give it a go. It was a lot more time consuming than swirled icing but th eeffect is great. I wouldnt be keen on doing this for large quantities...

I embossed the cupcakes using the GrapeVine Wilton mat and then used a sugracraft gun to follow the swirl design using black fondant.

mommyj, I bought the sugarcraft gun from Cake Decorating Central Castle Hill. It is quite expensive but if you are planning to do lots of fondant modelling then it is certainly worth every penny.

Cant remember what brand but they only sell one type at the shop.
