A few years ago, I made a round shirt cake and it’s still one of my FAVORITE Father’s day cake.
Naturally, I wanted to prepare some COOL Father’s day treats this year too…
And I thought it would be AWESOME to have a MINI version of that cake coz we DON’T always have time to make an elaborate cake! 😉
So, I spent some time playing with fondant and Voila….
EASY PEEZY shirt cupcakes were born!
You can find my step-by-step tutorial for making these shirt cupcakes at CakeJournal.
I used marshmallow fondant for the decorations.
A topper this sweet needed a delicious cupcake. So, I made my favorite vanilla cupcakes.
To make these Father’s day shirt cupcakes, you will need the following supplies:
And here are the steps:
Roll out blue fondant and cut out a circle piece, using the circle cutter.
Use a pizza cutter to cut out two thin strips.
These will become the collar and button line of your shirt cupcakes.
Use a paintbrush to brush some water around the top of the circular piece.
Stick one of the strips, as shown below.
You can stuff some tissue in the center of the collar so that it holds its shape.
Now, use a knife to cut off the ends of the other strip so that it becomes pointy.
Brush some water along the center of the shirt.
Stick the pointy strip here.
Cut off excess at the bottom with a knife.
Now, cut out a small rectangular piece and use the knife to make a light indentation on the top.
This will become the pocket of the shirt.
Brush some water near the side of the shirt and stick the pocket piece here.
Finally, roll out three little yellow fondant balls and press them onto the button line.
Also, roll out a very thin yellow strip and press it along the top of the pocket.
And you are done!
Well, that’s all for today.
