Bender (the robot) Cupcake Toppers

Posted on 12 July 2010 by Mădălina

Is anyone else excited that Futurama is back? I AM– hence the effort I put into making these Futurama theme cupcakes.

For these toppers I used Wilton Edible Writers on hard fondant disks. The cool thing about edible writers is that you can use them to doodle, and they are safe to eat. Personally, I’m not a big fan of fondant, but they make for a perfect canvas. Instead of using fondant to fully cover your cupcakes, you can make disks to top your cupcakes.

Fondant Disks
-Roll out fondant to 1/4″ thick, and cut out desired shape using cookie cutter. Allow to dry on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet for 4-5 hours.
