Selby's Fondant Cupcakes

I'm not sure what's got into me but lately, I just wanted to be creative and play with sugar fondant again.

So, this morning, I baked cupcakes again using the same recipe as the previous one. Not bad, huh? ;)

If last time, I made sugar fondant more into dolls,

then, today is more related to Easter theme.

Little flowers

A pink bunny with blue flowers.
A happy ladybug.

Carrots in purple basket.

Tadaaaa... A box of fondant cupcakes.
Do you think I can start to receive orders now? ;D

  4. of cos can start to take orders.
    go collect orders. give to your friends a sample piece and tell them you take orders. but can be quite taxing when it becomes a business of selling though. lol.

  52. HI Selba,
    Etsy is an online sort of shop where people buy and sell handmade things. I am not personally on it. I should have such talent!!! My little avatar and my blog banner were both created by someone on Etsy. I purchased it from Cakespy. Go to her blog to her online shop @ etsy and then check out etsy and see if it is for you. Let me know what you think. Email me. My address is in my profile:) Good Luck!
