Cupcakes for Nejla

My eldest daughter turned 8 today. We still haven't managed to organise a party for her yet - so slack, I know - but I was up until midnight making these for her to take to class today to share at school.

Chocolate cupcake with simple fondant icing. I stuck the fondant to the cake with a thin swipe of white chocolate buttercream - I couldn't be bothered making a sugar syrup just for the occasion, and I had the buttercream already on hand. Nej isn't a big fan of buttercream, which is why I used fondant to ice them instead. Ironically, she didn't 'feel like one' today, so everyone else ended up enjoying her birthday cupcakes haha. Oh well. She was happy...that's the important thing.
