Wilton Decorating Tip, #1A Round
Sweetshop Orange Fondant
Sweetshop Light Green Fondant
1.Ice cupcakes with a 1A decorating tip and chocolate buttercream frosting.
2.Open your orange fondant and knead it until it is soft and pliable. Once soft, break off a small portion of fondant about the size of a quarter and roll it into a ball. Take a butter knife and use the blunt edge to create long lines around the ball vertically to mimic the look of the lines of a pumpkin.
3.Open your light green fondant and make your stem. To do this, first knead the fondant until it is soft and pliable, then rip off a small piece about the size of a dime. Roll this piece into a short log and cut this log in half. Place this in the top, middle of your pumpkin.
4.Time to make your vine! Rip off another even smaller piece of your light green fondant and roll another small log. This time, make your log longer and thinner; then create a little loop. Trim the ends of your vine with a knife if needed, then place on top of your pumpkin and connect to the
base of your stem.
5.Place your cute little pumpkin on top of a cupcake.
6.Repeat Steps 2 to 4 for additional cupcakes.
