spa party cupcakes

my niece julia
turns 12 this month
her party was last week

she asked if i would make cupcakes
with lots of fondant
(apparently, she loves it)
in a spa-sleepover theme

she chose blue and pink as her colors


i made the fondant toppers the day before baking the cupcakes, and let them sit at room temperature overnight.

*note, i used duff goldman black fondant and it worked well--i liked the texture a lot. it is important to warm it in the microwave a bit before working with it.  i didn't use dg white, as it is "buttercream" flavored, not the flavor my niece loves. for the white and colored pieces i used satin ice brand tinted with gel food color.
(i am not compensated for endorsing or mentioning either brand)

i am linking these up to
