menopause fairy cupcake
Join me on facebook
Where are the middle aged fairies? All faires seems to be young, nubile and so perfectly pretty... then we jump to the elderly fairy godmother. What happens in between? One of my girlfriends suggested "perhaps they just aren't seen". Oh, that is a sad thought... so if you know a fairy or a woman between 45 and 55 make sure they are "seen" today!!
I've always loved the fairies that the fabulous cake decorator Dot Klerck of 'Eat Cake Party' makes; today's "Menopause Fairy Cupcake" is a spin on Dot's design. To see the talented Dot's fairies and the rest of her amazing cakes check out her flickr photostream.
I used fresh lime leaves to create the fondant leaves
Don't have leaf cutters or leaf veining moulds? In a pinch you can roll your fondant or modelling paste onto the back of a food safe, unsprayed leaf. Washed and dried mature leaves work best. Place a small ball of fondant on the back of the leave, roll lightly over it with a rolling pin. Peel off the fondant leaf, trim if necessary and drape over rolling pin or spoon to create shape, leave to dry.
Happy Baking :)
