- Black and white fondant
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.
Emoji cupcakes: Step 2
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.
Emoji cupcakes: Step 3
Fit a large open nozzle in a
piping bag and fill with chocolate buttercream. Before serving, pipe buttercream swirls on each cupcake.
Emoji cupcakes: Step 4
When piping, use smooth circular motions and lift off the nozzle upwards as you complete the swirl. This ensures perky poops.
Emoji cupcakes: Step 5
Carefully position two eyes and one mouth on each cupcake, pressing the fondant features gently into the buttercream piping.
