Golden pastries

Materials:

  • 250 grams of FunCakes Mix for Cupcakes
  • 400 grams of FunCakes fondant -Bright White
  • 5 eggs
  • 250 grams of soft unsalted sugar
  • FunCakes Mini Chocolate Rocks – Dark
  • FunCakes Edible FunColours Gel – Brown
  • FunCakes Piping Gel
  • FunCakes Metallic spray Gold
  • Wilton -Perfect Height- Rolling Pin
  • Silikomart Semisfera Mold
  • Jar of apricot jam
  • Sieve
  • Icing sugar to roll out on

Preparation:
Heat the jar of apricot jam in the microwave and push it through a sieve with a spoon. This is your apricot jelly to cover the cakes with. Put this aside covered with plastic foil.

Preheat the oven to 180°C (convection oven 160°C). Make the Cupcake mix as indicated on the package or in this basic recipe and fill the silicone molds to 2/3 with batter. Bake the cupcakes in about 18-22 minutes until golden and let cool in the mold. Carefully remove the cupcakes when they have cooled down from the mold. You can put them in the freezer for half an hour, then it will be even easier.

Coat the cupcakes with a thin layer of apricot jelly. Colour the fondant brown with the gel. Roll it out on a work surface sprinkled with icing sugar to a thickness of about 1-2 mm and cover the cupcakes with this. Spray the cupcakes with the golden metallic spray and let it air dry for a while. Spread a little piping gel along the bottom edge and push the chocolate rocks against it with your hand.
