How to make the Fondant Cupcake Toppers:

Tip: Make sure you sprinkle your surface with powdered sugar when rolling out fondant. It helps prevent sticking.

  1. Roll out some red fondant. Using a 2 1/2 inch round cookie cutter, cut out enough circles for your cupcakes.
  2. Roll out the white fondant. Using the Thor hammer cookie cutter, cut out enough of the hammer heads for your cupcakes. Also, cut off the corners a bit, so it doesn’t have sharp corners.
Color mist for cupcakes

Place the hammer heads onto wax paper with a cookie sheet under it. Take the Silver Color Mist and spray the hammer heads.

Fondant for Thor cupcakes

Roll out the black fondant and make enough hammer handles for your cupcakes.

Trim up fondant as needed to make clean edges.

Once the silver mist has dried, it is time to assemble the toppers.

To place the toppers on the cupcakes, take a little bit of decorators icing and apply to the tops of the cupcakes. Then gently place the toppers on top.
