I'm making cupcakes for my daughter's girl scout bridging ceremony (She's going from a daisy to a brownie!).
I've decided to make daisy cupcakes by cutting marshmallows into petals. The base of the cupcake I plan to icing with pastel colors, then I'll add the marshmallow petals with a dollop of yellow in the center. I also thought it would be cute to add a M&M ladybug.
The ceremony is Thursday night. My question is....
Could I go ahead and make all the ladybugs tonight? I'm using a toothpick to "paint" on gel icing. The gel icing doesn't harden, and M&M's don't go bad, right? Or will the icing do something weird to the candy?
Could I go ahead and cut the marshmallows and toss them in sugar? I like the look of the sugar coating the petal and it makes them easier to handle. Would they keep in a plastic bag?
Can I do everything tomorrow night and store them in a deep cake pan covered with plastic wrap?
Or should I just plan on putting the cupcakes together the afternoon of the party?
I think they will be really cute, and I wanted to do something a little special since it's a special day. I'd prefer not to screw it up!
