Ingredients
  • 12 of your favorite chocolate cupcakes
  • 1 stick butter softened
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp milk
  • Black gel food coloring
  • 4-5 oz. White Fondant
  • Black Edible Marker
  • Silver Dragees
Instructions
  1. Cool your cupcakes on a wire rack. In a medium sized bowl, beat butter, icing sugar and milk using an electric mixer. Beat on medium and gradually increase to high.
  2. Once the ingredients start combining, add a small amount of black gel food coloring. Continue beating until completely tinted.
  3. Scoop your buttercream into a frosting bag and frost each cupcake.
  4. Roll out your white fondant so that it’s about ¼ of an inch thick. With a small, circular cookie cutter (about 1 ½ inches in size), cut out 12 fondant circles.
  5. Start decorating your fondant clock: add silver sprinkles where the 12, 3, 6, and 9 should be. Draw out two lines in between each silver sprinkle with your food black marker. Use decorating frosting to draw out the clock’s “hands.”
  6. Place one fondant clock on each cupcake and serve.
