Polar Express Cupcakes


Polar Express Cupcakes
In honor of National Cupcake Day (December 15th), here are some adorable Polar Express Cupcakes that my daughter and her friend created this past weekend.  They baked three dozen cupcakes, made a double batch of vanilla butter cream frosting, tinted a portion of the frosting blue, and created fondant adornments to go with the theme.  They rolled out colored fondant and used edible marking pens to add the details.  The result was cute and delicious cupcakes that are sure to please any fan of the movie or the book The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg.  After watching the movie with my Pre K class today, I an thinking these would go nicely with some Hot Chocolate.

Happy National Cupcake Day!

The girls use edible marking pens to add details to fondant shapes.

They made tickets using yellow fondant and a black edible marking pen. 

The young bakers cut each train out by hand using a paper pattern that they printed off of the internet.
Then they added a window and wheels with a black edible marking pen.
They used a snowflake cookie cutter and then adorned with blue edible marking pen details.
