Spa Party Cupcakes

My niece Julia turns 12 this month. She asked if I would make cupcakes with lots of fondant apparently, she loves it, in a spa-sleepover theme. She chose blue and pink as her colors.
I made the fondant toppers the day before baking the cupcakes, and let them sit at room temperature overnight. So the “trinkets” would stand out nicely, I made a circular piece to use as a base. Coupled with the mounds of frosting, these were truly fit for a girl’s night in.

<strong<*note, i used duff goldman black fondant and it worked well–i liked the texture a lot. it is important to warm it in the microwave a bit before working with it. i didn’t use dg white, as it is “buttercream” flavored, not the flavor my niece loves. for the white and colored pieces i used satin ice brand tinted with gel food color.
I am not compensated for endorsing or mentioning either brand.
