Cupcakes are perfect for any occasion. Don’t you agree??
Whenever hosting a get-together I like to make themed cupcakes.
I’m collaborating with Advil® to bring you a tutorial for some Race Day themed cupcakes. Perfect for a get together to watch the race on TV.
We’re excited about the upcoming Ford Ecoboost 400 in Miami on November 20th. Ty Dillon will be driving car #95.
But what do you do when you’re entertaining and aches and pains are bothering you? Don’t let them hold you back. Take a dose of Advil® Film-Coated Tablets. It’s fast acting and goes to work in minutes on your pain*.
Racecars. What do you think of when you think of race cars, races or Race Day. Racing flags and tires are the first thing that came to mind.
- white fondant
- black fondant or black gel color
- gray fondant (mix white and black fondant together)
- black edible marker
- silver luster dust
- nonstick baking mat
- fondant rolling pin
- square or rectangle cutter (optional)
- ball tool
- food grade paint brush
- fondant smoother (optional)
Racing Flags cupcake topper
Step 1: Take a portion of white fondant and massage it until it softens and is easy to work with. Roll it out to a thin layer. Use a square or rectangle cutter to cut out the shape. I only have square cutters so I use a knife to cut about 1/3 off to make the square a rectangle. Alternatively, cut the shape using a knife. Let the fondant rectangles partially dry so that they’re stiff enough for the edible marker.
Step 2: Roll pieces of the gray fondant into a thin tube and cut into even pieces for the flag pole. Set aside and let them harden.
Step 3: Using the black edible marker draw a grid on lines on the white fondant rectangles. Don’t press too hard with the pen. Fill in to create a checkered pattern.
Step 4: Using a paint brush, brush water on flag pool and attach flag. Adjust the flag so it looks as though it’s moving (instead of perfectly flat on the mat). Let it set before placing the topper on the cupcake.
Race car tires cupcake toppers
Step 1: Soften the black fondant by massaging it. Roll out a thick piece of the black fondant. Cut with a round cutter. Using a ball tool, move in a circular motion while lightly pressing to create a circular indent.
Step 2: Roll out a thin piece of gray fondant. Cut with a round cutter so that it will fit in the indent. Add to black tire. Using a ball tool and knife, add markings so that it looks like the wheel rims.
Step 3: Place a very small amount of shortening on your fingertip and rub on black part of wheel to add shine. Using a paint brush, lightly dust the rim with silver luster dust for a metallic look.
Once toppers are made, color your icing and add to piping bags. I decided on yellow and blue to coordinate with
