Pink Ribbon Cupcakes

Today is Pink Ribbon Day – a day to raise awareness and funds to support many women who are affected by breast and gynecological cancers.

To help raise money for this cause I made some cute vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting and pink fondant ribbons.

To make the vanilla cupcakes I used a White Wings Vanilla Cupcake packet mix which made 22 small cupcakes if prepared as per packet instructions.

For the frosting I used 1 tub of Betty Crocker’s Vanilla Buttercream Frosting and piped onto the cupcakes using a disposable piping bag and a star shaped piping nozzle.

HOW TO MAKE PINK FONDANT RIBBONS

  1. Dye a small amount of white fondant with Rose Pink food colouring until the desired pink colour is achieved
  2. Roll fondant out using a rolling pin to about 3mm in thickness
  3. Cut 20cm x 1cm strips of fondant using a ruler and a sharp knife
  4. Taking one fondant strip and holding at both ends, cross one end over the other so that about 1cm of each end extends past the join
  5. Secure join with a small amount of sugar glue or egg white, making sure to not flatten the loop
  6.  Repeat for all strips and allow fondant to harden
  7. To add an extra touch, glue a silver cachou to each join of the ribbons
  8. Once cupcakes have been frosted carefully place a ribbon onto each cupcakes pressing slightly into frosting to secure
