Hello Pirate

This is what happens when I am at home and bored.

I've had these Hello Kitty cupcakes in mind for a while. She is the one thing I can draw with my eyes closed so it was simple transition to fondant.

People always ask me if it's hard to work with fondant. I don't think so. The sculpting part of it is pretty cathartic. Just go with the flow. It's fun to mix up colors and just start shaping things.

I made a bunch of kitty faces, with a couple of pirate kitties thrown in for good measure. You know how the trend was to bling everything out? I'm going to pirate-out everything. Whatever's not nailed down will be turned into a pirate.

I have a few friends who adore Hello Kitty as much as I do, so I knew they'd be appreciated. I put the faces on red velvet cupcakes and dyed the cream cheese frosting a light pink. It gave the kitty faces a nice sweet n' fluffy pillow to rest on.

Fondant Hello Kitty how-to, here.

You need to come up with a new gadget... like a Bedazzler, only for pirates. I'm trying to think of a good pirate-like name. ...
