When we lived in Southern California, we would always take car trips up north to visit our families, which meant an inevitable nose-pinching pass through the “stinky cows”, as my daughter used to call them. And then we would joke that it smelled like Daddy! 😉 Now that we live in the desert, we don’t get to visit the stinky cows anymore, but we sure can make some… and these smell a heck of a lot better!
I wanted to create this sweet farm animal in cupcake form that would be perfect for a farm-themed celebration or hoedown. When making animals, I tend to make them as three-dimensional figures or depict their faces with fondant. To be a little different, I thought it would be fun to incorporate the entire cupcake into the presentation by covering the surface in its entirety with fondant and I think it turned out super cute. The same technique could be utilized for a variety of animals. Get the step-by-step tutorial to creating this fondant cow on the Craftsy blog!
