I’m not sure Kermit the Frog got his facts straight when he said there are so many songs written about rainbows. I wonder why he said that. I could be wrong or possibly living under a rock, but I can only name two (1) Rainbow Connection – the song where Kermit sang exactly just that and (2) Judy Garland’s Somewhere Over the Rainbow from the movie the Wizard of Oz.
Nevertheless, rainbows are one of nature’s best mysteries ever. And the most beautiful.
Okay, so I know that science already demystified how rainbows are created. But hey, let’s not take the romance out of rainbows. Le’ts make cupcake toppers instead!
Fondant or Gumpaste Rainbow Cupcake Topper
What we need:
Fondant in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and white.
Small flower cutter
Water and brush to glue things together
(1) Roll all fondant (or gumpaste) colors into long thin ropes (except the white one). If you have an extruder then you may use that one but working the fondant by hand works, too.
(2) Arrange them in this order: red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple.
(3) Bend them like a rainbow
(4) Now, time to add the clouds. Roll out the white fondant thinly and cut out a couple of flowers.
(5) Go get the rolling pin and roll the “clouds” back and forth in just one direction so they would appear elongated.
So, when was the last time you saw rainbows? Now I think I’m overdue for one.
