Under The Sea
Inspiration: The sea! If you have met an Australian, you will know how much they are in love with the ocean and the wonderful creatures that live in it! (Minus the tall sharp tailed creatures!) This cupcake reminds me of home, the Great Barrier Reef and its beautiful clear warm waters. I feel like i have captured a piece of Australia in a cupcake. So this is one of my favorites so far!
Decorating Techniques: I have to say this cupcake was rather difficult to make! It took time, patience and a variety of different fondant colors. There was no real 'technique' which i followed, i just coloured the fondant and searched various tropical images for ideas. (Holiday pictures from back home for inspiration!)
Tips for next time: (For me) Do not attempt to make these cupcakes if home sick! (For others) Watch 'Finding Nemo' as a source of inspiration before attempting to make them!
