Given our exciting and super hero filled passed two years with Super Ems, I knew I wanted her second birthday to be super hero themed. When I mentioned it to my friend, Tracy, she said, “Oh, and you could have the super hero emblem with an E instead of an S.” Um, yeah, but I would be the one who had to make it like that.
After a lot of thinking, and youtube tutorials, I came up with a plan.
Sketch the design on paper.
Then, I traced the design on parchment paper and cut it out.
Using a utility knife (clean blade, of course), I scored the fondant with layer after layer. Then, I ever so carefully did the “E.” I did not want to have to re-trace the “E.” I think I held my breath the whole time I cut it out.
First try! Phew! I slapped the pink onto a purple background and then stuck it all in the freezer to harden and stay that way before the party. Then, I realized I had extra fondant and borrowed a neighbors star cookie cutter to cut out star decorations.
I think it turned out really good and is one of my prouder projects.
Emmie seemed happy with it too! Well, at least eating the frosting part.
