Wasn't me honey.
Leesa-the first cupcakes are just fondant but the 2nd toppers are fondant with bit of tylose powder to harden. You can use like satin ice gumpaste but I would mix in some normal fondant as well to make it a bit softer. I use S.I it for my flowers because they set like rock. Just get some fondant, colours as a set of round cutters and a small rolling pin and you can do them no worries.
Thanks Tanya! So would you just ice the cupcakes with buttercream and then stick the monsters on top?
Right, so I'll need:-
fondant - how much do you think, for around 24 cupcakes?
I already have some star cutters here so I'm set for those
And that's it? How do you stick the fondant bits to each other, with just water, or with sugar syrup?
