..Gold Cup Cupcakes

DSC_5120

If you follow me on twitter or instagram, you know I was hanging out at the Gold Cup this weekend.  I had THE BEST TIME EVER. Everyone was tasked with pitching in some kind of food for the group and I of course volunteered cupcakes. I made classic vanilla cake with cream cheese icing. Pink dye with white pearls, preppy plaid pastel baking cups, and a fondant horse shoe were all the details that I felt were absolutely necessary. 

To make the horse shoes I rolled fondant into little logs (about the size of a pretzel stick) and then bent them into "U" shapes. I then pinched the tops of the "U" to get the fatter part and flattened them out with a rolling pin. Lastly, I used a pen cap to imprint little dots for texture. Time consuming? Yes. Worth it? Ehh maybe. Adorable? Totally!

Currently Coveting is also on TwitterFBInstagramBloglovin, and Pinterest.
