Canada Day Beaver Cupcakes: A Failed Experiment

Ottawa has a tendency of getting really humid at times and in the past couple of weeks, it’s been hot and humid almost every day. Humidity, while not pleasant for a lot of humans, is even more unpleasant when it comes to baking. I had made marshmallow fondant which turned out perfect but soon discovered that I wasn’t all that great with fondant and it was way too humid for cupcakes.

Below is my failed attempt at making Canada Day Beaver Cupcakes. I totally wanted to tell people to eat my beaver but alas…nobody ate my beaver on July 1st.

In these fabulous pictures taken with my crappy Galaxy S phone, you see a chocolate cupcake from a box with chocolate icing from a tub, decorated with a hazelnut wafer cookie and marshmallow fondant for the nose, eyes and teeth.

I think it looks like a retarded chipmunk…

And the result less than an hour after… It was still as delicious as a chocolate cupcake could be though so that’s nice.

Less than an hour later... Oops....

Less than an hour later… Oops….

Maybe next year I’ll be better at it!
