Here's some glam goth cupcake-ness for Halloween. As most bakers know, creative inspiration comes anywhere, anytime.
It's time for some pretty anyway. I have to make up for those disgusting severed tongue truffles of my last post. This cupcakes design is in the complete opposite direction.
For the roses I used homemade marshmallow fondant then followed this quick and easy fondant tutorial to form the roses. The ends of the petals were disco dusted to match the ones I saw in the store.
The black velvet cupcake recipe is from Sweetapolita and it's perfection. For the black buttercream I followed is from Savory Sweet Life's chocolate buttercream recipe and added black paste food coloring.
When I brought these to work, no one would touch them. I thought it was because of the lovely effect black paste food coloring has one one's teeth and lips but finally discovered everyone thought they were too pretty to eat. This was weird because they had no problem scarfing up the icky severed tongue truffles the day before. Hmmmm.
