Preparation:
Preheat the oven to 180°C (convection oven 160°C). Prepare 200 gram of Mix for Buttercream and 500 gram of Mix for Cupcakes as indicated on the package or in the basic recipes for buttercream and cupcakes. Place the baking cups in the muffin pan and fill the cups with an ice cream spoon with the cupcake batter. Bake for 18-20 minutes until they’re golden brown. Let them cool down on the kitchen counter.

Flavour the buttercream to taste with the whipping cream flavouring and colour it brown with the colouring. Place tip 2A and tip 1M each in a decorating bag and fill with the cream. Pipe on some cupcakes a poopy using tip 2A and on the other cupcakes a rosette using tip 1M. Place in the fridge.

Knead almost all the fondant well (keep a small amount white) and colour it with the orange and yellow colouring in the correct emoticon colour. Roll out the fondant on a with icing sugar covered work surface and cut out rounds. Use the white fondant for the eyes and the mouths. Use the other colours of fondant and the cutting wheel to make the scarp hearts, the pupils, eyebrows, sunglasses and more. Paste the pieces with some edible glue on the yellow rounds to finish emoticons. Place them on the rosettes and paste the eyes and mouths on the poopy cupcakes (don’t use any glue).

Number of cupcakes:
16-18 cupcakes.
