Tips for XO Cupcakes
These XO cupcakes for Valentine’s Day are a perfect class party treat. They’re so easy to make and decorate, the kids can help. Here are a few tips for making these fondant decorated cupcakes.
- Sprinkle a bit of powdered sugar onto the surface before rolling out the fondant.
- Don’t roll the fondant too thin – we advise 1/4 of an inch because the letters are sturdy enough to withstand little hands “helping.”
- If you have time, I recommend rolling and cutting the fondant in advance. This will give them time to dry and set up.
- Use alphabet cutters about 1-inch tall – we have these alphabet cookie cutters from Amazon and they’re great.
