My sister asked me to make cupcakes for her daughter's 4th birthday. She is in love with the movie, "Tangled". Yes, I am referring to both of them.
This is my baking mess that I set up before getting started. I like to get everything I need together in one spot before starting; to make sure I have all the ingredients I need. I put things away as I move along.Microwave Marshmallow Fondant
The first thing I started with was the paint pallets. I quickly made some fondant, rolled it out and cut out some paint pallets with a few fondant cutters: large leaf, medium circle, and small circle.
Vanilla ButterCream Frosting - Wilton

2 Tbs heavy cream, milk, or water – Mix with beater
