It is amazing how realistic these terrarium cupcakes look in person. And you don’t have to have any special skills to make them either. The white mushrooms look as though they just sprouted and the red mushrooms, well, they are just a whimsical touch.
These cupcakes are best made over a few days. At least two days before you want to use them, make the greenery and mushrooms out of fondant. Leave them out to dry, otherwise, they will be too soft to handle.
Use Oreo crumbles to add some “dirt” to the sprouts.
Use small cookie cutters to cut out leaves from fondant.
Other greenery can be made with a fondant mold.
It is also easy to mold things with your hands. Always work the fondant by squeezing it and folding it over to get it pliable and ready to use.
Keep any unused fondant sealed when not using it or it will dry out. Do not store it in the refrigerator, but instead, keep it at room temperature.
