Birthday Snowflake Cupcakes

I made these the other day for my sons 9th birthday. These were cut with my brand new Cricut Cake Machine. Because I watched several videos on youtube, cutting out the fondant was a breeze. Placing a small chunk of the fondant in the microwave for 6 seconds make it super easy to knead. Just make sure when you roll your fondant out, do it very thin and then place on a flat surface in the freezer for at 30 min. This really helps it cut well. Also, my machine was only $49.95 plus shipping. We saved over $400.00!!! Looking forward to using it a whole lot more.

I entered this project over at My Sheri Crafts Blog, just click to go there.

I hope you enjoy this super fun project!!

Cricut Cake Basics Cartridge

Cut 1in to 2 in snowflakes of your choice.

Fondant (I purchased the Wilton premade white fondant, then used my Wilton icing color to dye it) Knead the color into the fondant using latex gloves. This kept my hands from turning a pretty shade of blue.
