Happy Birthday Hunnyboo!
Well, after hours of searching for black candy melts, thinking I would use them for mouse ears on the cupcakes, I finally decided to use Oreo cookies, since I saw that a few others had done it successfully. I mean since I'm keeping it simple, I don't dare take the time to make a dozen mouse ears. Nooo, I take the time to make a dozen bows instead, (which, btw, is much more time consuming than mouse ears).
Then I make the red velvet cake, and instead of "simply" frosting it, I break out the black fondant. Who knew it would take forever to roll it out? And forever for those huge mouse ears to dry so they could stand upright? I mean, who would attempt such a feat for the first time on the day of the event??? Me... the one who claims she likes to keep it simple.
I must say it all turned out pretty nice for my first time even using fondant. I worked with modeling chocolate once, and made a cake with it that same day (an overwhelming and exhausting story for another day). But fondant, never have touched the stuff. But I'm glad I took the time to challenge myself. Of course nothing is too much for my Hunnyboo.
