Coca-Cola Cupcake

I don't drink coca cola. The fact is , I can't drink coca cola, I really need to watch my waistline . :( .. But then Coca Cola cupcake seriously sound like and interesting one . Hmmmm.... I just can't resist this . So I have decided to try this recipe over the weekend since my nephew , Andrew was around visiting us over the weekend.
Anyway , this is my first time working my hands on fondant . It turn out to be pretty easy , shaping and rolling it . I kind of love the fondant rose, except that I was out of idea when I was making and shaping this fondant at 3.00 am in the morning . I ended up decorating this cupcake with a simple fondant shapes . ;)
See this , its fun and fuss free when you have your nephew helping up to take photos . LOL......Anyway , let get back to the recipe before you get bored ... heehee
