What you need:
- Gel food coloring in Golden Yellow
- Food safe black marker
- Candy eyes
- Silver cake dusting powder
- Small artist brush (new or only used for food)
- Circle cutters in various sizes (I had to get creative & used different lids from things – wash well before using & grease slightly with Crisco to prevent sticking)
First color at least half of your fondant yellow. Use a toothpick to add a small amount of gel coloring to the fondant. Then, on a clean surface greased with a bit of Crisco, knead the fondant well to incorporate the color evenly and soften the fondant. Leave some fondant white to make the goggles. (Note: keep unused fondant wrapped tightly in plastic wrap to prevent drying out.)
Roll out your yellow fondant to about 1/8-1/4″ thickness. Then cut out circles about the size of your cupcakes. Use Crisco on your surface & on the rolling pin to prevent sticking.
Using your brush, attach the candy eyes with a little bit of water brushed onto the back of each eye. Optional: Cut small circles of extra yellow fondant to use as eyelids, and sculpt small teeth out of a bit of white fondant. Attach these with a dab of water as well.
Pour out a small amount of silver cake dusting powder onto a plate or small bowl. Dip your brush into the water and mix it into the powder, to make a pasty paint. Brush the silver color onto the white fondant goggles, and let it dry.
At this point, they’re done & ready to use! Pop them on top of some cooled frosted cupcakes & let the party begin!
