I used homemade marshmallow fondant to make these little shirts. 

And then, I topped them on my favorite vanilla cupcakes with buttercream icing.

To make these Father’s day shirt cupcakes, you will need the following supplies:

Step 2:
Use a pizza cutter to cut out two thin strips.
These will become the collar and button line of your shirt cupcakes.

Step 3:
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.

Step 4:
Now, use a knife to cut off the ends of the other strip so that it becomes pointy.

Step 6:
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.
