Sonic the Hedgehog Cupcakes

My best friend asked me if i could make some kind of Sonic cupcakes for her son, who just turned 7. I did some Googling and i just wasn't sure how to best go about it. Until, i saw this blog post.

I had only made fondant once before, but i thought i could pull something cute off.

This is what i ended up with:

Cute, right?

I used a recipe from a book i picked up super cheap at TJ Maxx called The Cupcake: Life's Better with a Cupcake which i can't find a link to on Amazon, so this is all i have to show you for that, and i used the Basic Vanilla cupcake recipe from there. I used buttercream for the eyes, mixed with some cocoa powder for the noses, mouths, and pupils. I used the fondant recipe located here.

My BFF's son loved them, even though he only ate one of them (i wasn't sure how he'd do with fondant, being autistic with some sensory issues) but we the adults devoured them! They were SO GOOD... i had never covered cupcakes fully with fondant before and therefore it was a pleasant surprise how they were sweet but not overly sugary like buttercream tends to be for me. This may be a be a favorite for me, even if my arms ached for a couple days from all the kneading. lol I am sure that goes away with practice.

I'm not sure if I love that a 7 year knows who Sonic the Hedgehog is (unless I'm so out of it he's returned and I missed it!) or how freakin' cute these are! Well done!

Sonic has made a HUGE comeback! This kid ADORES Sonic, and is so mega into his beloved Hedgehog he has plushies of Sonic, Tails, that pink girl, and Shadow. =) For his birthday, he decorated the kitchen walls with coloring pages of the Sonic characters his mom printed out for him to color. It was *so* cute!

Those are freaking cute! I wanted to do an image like that from the side but didn't think i'd be able to pull it off in icing. =) Nice job!
