Emoji cupcakes: Step 1

Roll out the white and black fondants on a lightly dusted work surface 
to 3mm thickness, preferably using spacers to ensure an even thickness.

Using small oval and round cutters, cut out 24 eyes and 12 mouths from white fondant, then 24 pupils from black fondant.

Using edible glue, stick the black pupils centrally on top of the white eyes. Once you have cut out your fondant shapes, leave them to dry for 2–3 hours so they are easier to handle.
