Fondant Cupcakes

I made more chocolate cupcakes with swiss meringue buttercream again for my cousin's baby's first month celebration. As a token of appreciation for the couple, I made a pair of baby sleeping fondant cupcakes for them. I was glad the chocolate cupcakes were well received, and the couple was delighted to receive my personalised fondant cupcakes.
I'm submitting this to Aspiring Bakers #16: Fun with Fondant! (February 2012) hosted by Yvonne of iceamericanos.

On a separate subject, I was pleasantly surprise to see an old schoolmate from Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP) from my cousin's baby's celebration! It was 20 years ago when we last met! He was my swimming coach at Lifeguard Corps Club in NP, even though he was only one year my senior. When I went for my studies in NP after my "A' levels, I was admitted directly to year 2. At that time, I do not know how to swim, and took the opportunity to learn in NP. We reminisced the good old time we had during that period, including our outing to Kallang River for kayaking. It really brought back fond memories of the times during my tertiary studies.

I have never played with Fondant and I know how delightful they can make baked goods look. This is a great example.

May I know how you keep the fondant cupcakes from sweating until the day of serving? As I plan to make a fondant cake for my son. thanks!

Hi Ah Tze,
I left the fondant covered cupcakes in room temperature. I didn't put them into the fridge for fear of sweating when I take it out. The last time when I did a 2-tier fondant cake, I left it at room temperature too. Hope this clarifies.
