Over The Top Cupcakes

Springerle cookies make great wedding favors but that's not the only thing you can make with springerle molds or stamps.  Why not use these molds to make fondant tops for your cupcakes?  Bakerella, the queen of cake pops, another wedding favorite you'll see all through this wedding blog and probably every other wedding blog, has figured out how to use her springerle molds to top cupcakes. Such a smart lady!

Want to learn the details of just how Bakerella made these beauties? Head to her website where she takes you through it step by step.  These cupcakes are topped with pressed satin ice fondant colored with rose gel icing color from Chefmaster.  Just press the fondant onto the springerle press, then peel the fondant off and cut with the right size circle using a cookie cutter.  Place on top of your cupcake and voila! These cupcakes won't need fancy cupcake wrappers that cost you a fortune, their decorative look is all from the fondant topping.

If you'd rather use your springerle for cookies, think about using it to ice the cookies instead of pressing the cookies.  Use the same process except you place it on top of a shaped sugar cookie instead.  The heart shaped springerle mold is available here. Again, easier to manipulate the fondant than the usual springerle cookie dough but with the same wow! effect.

Whichever option you choose, springerle stamps are sure to make your cupcakes or cookies a big hit.  Thank you Bakerella! Is a new book in the offing? 101 Ways To Use Springerle Stamps?
