cornstarch for rolling fondant
Bake the chocolate cupcakes according to the package directions, using red cupcake liners. Remove from pan and allow to cool completely.
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Dust a flat working surface with a thin layer of cornstarch. Roll the fondant to about ¼-inch thick and use a cookie cutter to cut out 12 fondant circles that will fit the top of the cupcakes.
Roll 12 spheres about 1-inch diameter. Flatten and shape them into ovals.
Roll 24 smaller spheres and shape flat and pointed at one end to resemble Pooh's ears.
In a bowl, combine butter, icing sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth.
Using an offset spatula, frost each cupcake.
Assemble fondant pieces by placing a flat oval in the center of one large fondant circle, brushing the back of the oval to help stick onto the circle.
Using Wilton tip #7, draw Pooh’s nose and eyes with black frosting. Switch to Wilton tip #6 and draw on his eyebrows.
Place assembled fondant Pooh face on each cupcake. Apply the ears, brushing the back of each ear with water to secure on the face.
