Food Photo Friday - Purim Dessert

This was Jennifer's idea, and I thought it might be particularly fun for the younger set, while still yummy for "children of all ages".
Which Purim Character Cupcake would YOU choose? And why?

I would pick Haman because it looks the most chocolate-y...

Nice! How long did it take to make those?

Too long ;)
But it could have been worse had I gotten all "particular".
I didn't, because I've mellowed.... :)

I'm curious as to why you made the "bad" character (Haman) the one with dark skin? It's sad that children will grow up making the association that bad people have dark skin, as we reinforce it with food.

Shelli,
While I could see why you might take it that way, I'm happy to report to you that your hair trigger reaction is unnecessary in this situation.
I bought the multicultural pack of fondant and did not have enough of any one color to make all the faces match. (Truthfully, I would have preferred to use the darker one for ALL the characters, because that is probably what they looked like in that locale but I couldn't make flesh colored hair).
Since I had to split the fondant, I made a purely stylistic choice of what would show up best on the darker fondant and the darker garb I felt would look better with the darker skin.
Brown beards or brown hair made from the same fondant would just look muddied and dull.
Sometimes a hoofbeat is just a horse, not a zebra ;) And a cupcake is just a cupcake.

I love these cupcakes! Thanks so much for posting. Do I have to use fondant or can I just frost and decorate? I am making these for my students (I'm a preschool teacher) and also for the neighborhood children that come by.

Elizabeth, I suppose you could use frosting. The fondant just added an easy "base" of skin to work with....
Let me know how they come out. Kids adore them!!!
