Additional Information

Step 1

Cover cupcakes lightly with buttercream icing. Let set 15 minutes.

Step 2

Place sugar in saucepan. Combine water and corn syrup; add to sugar and stir until well-mixed. Cook over low heat. Don't allow temperature of mixture to exceed 100°F. Remove from heat; stir in extract and icing color.

Step 3

Place cooled cupcakes or mini cakes on cooling grid positioned over cookie sheet or pan to catch excess icing. Cupcakes which will be covered completely should be turned bottom side up. Pour icing on center of cupcake using pan or measuring cup. Or, pipe icing from a cut decorating bag. Cover the cupcake completely, or use your coating as a glaze to simply cover tops and drip over the sides. Touch up any bare spots with spatula. Let set.

Step 4

Excess icing may be reheated just to pouring consistency. Don't overheat the icing as it will lose its shiny finish.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont recommend for Petite Fours I was looking for a really quick and easy pour fondant recipe. I have never done this technique before but it really didnt sound too hard. I have quite a bit of baking experience. When I went to pour it over my petite fours it just sort of rolled right off of them and didn't adhere on the sides at all. Even as I intentionally held my spoon closer to the side. I noticed in the other reviews that a baker who was also using this recipe for p.fours also had some trouble. It tasted good but did not work for me and this project.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I made this icing for my petit four. It didn't work out. The consistency was just to thin and didn't look well on the cakes. It was sort of transparent, eventhough i added plenty of gel food coloring. I wouldn't recommend this recipe at all for petit fours, maybe for other pastries. Not your best recipe Wilton!!
