Majora's Mask: Mask Cupcake Set [Masks #1-3]
I mentioned when I posted the Majora's Mask Cake that I really wanted to do the entire set of masks from the game. Though these will be in cupcake form rather than whole cakes because whoa time and whoa wastage of cake.
I got some time last week to churn out a few of them, so here are the first three.
All the cupcakes are a red buttercake (for no reason other than I was making a large batch of cake batter for three projects, and it needed to be red for one of them) covered in chocolate buttercream and then fondant. The overall shape for this mask was the easiest to achieve, given the spherical shape of the mask. I wired the leaves, my first attempt at wiring since the last massive failure, so I was relieved they stayed put (for the most part). The markings were done with lustre dust.
I took on the Goron mask next. This one took a bit of shaping both with the buttercream layer as well as bit of fondant before laying the top 'skin' of fondant over it. I couldn't decide whether to to blonde or white hair given it differs in all the official artwork. I was going to do white given Darmani's hair is white, but went for a pale blonde in the end. The white stood out a bit too much.
And lastly the Zora. This mask was by far the hardest to do, because it is so plain. The design lies mainly in the shape of the mask, and I failed a bit at representing that. Making the fins was lots of fun, though. These, like the Deku leaves, are wired.
