I will just jump right into it! A year or so ago, I got a cupcake order to make Sesame Street cupcakes.
I like for people to just give me creative freedom, especially when a lot of people aren't really sure what they want. So all they said was they wanted Sesame Street for their little boy.
So off I went, scouring the internet for pictures of inspiration, looking what other people had done for Sesame Street cakes and cupcakes (This is always my unofficial first step :) )
I really did not see anything that jumped out at me so I just started drawing! This is my second step. I always start with drawing. And also it's just fun :)
So here was my finished drawing on what I envisioned. I know, sometimes I go crazy with the ideas.So this is how I started. I baked my cupcakes, I always use either my own recipe or a Moist Deluxe French Vanilla Cake Mix. I also baked mini cupcakes. I started playing around with the fondant. (I try to use as little as possible because I know not a lot of people like the way it tastes)
To Assemble everything, you turn the mini cupcake upside down on top of the big cupcake. Ice everything to make a nice dome shape. Only The Count's body is covered in fondant, so go ahead and add that now.
Stick the heads on a toothpick and stick them on top of the dome. I finished each cupcake by using buttercream icing to create corrosponding textures.
Here are the finished products! They turned out better than I even hoped! Needless to say, they were a hit!
Thanks for reading today! I will post more tomorrow!
