Christopher Robin, here we come!! I am thrilled to share with you my recipe for these Hunny Pot Cupcakes!

At first, I was a little nervous about making these cupcakes. I wasn’t sure if the “Hunny Pots” would look right but in the end, everything turned out great! I should really have more faith in my baking capabilities. Plus, in the end, it’s all about having fun, right?!

These cupcakes are super sweet because of their honey-topped drizzle. Pooh sure loves his honey and these cupcakes really reflect that.

How excited are you for the Christopher Robin movie? Did you read and watch Pooh’s adventures growing up?

Ingredients

Hunny Pot Cupcakes Recipe

Vanilla cupcake/cake mix + ingredients to make it

8 oz. white fondant, divided

Brown gel food coloring

Yellow gel food coloring

Cornstarch for rolling

Decorating Pen

A small bowl of water

2 sticks butter, softened

4 cups icing sugar

4-5 tbsp milk

2 tsp vanilla extract

Honey for drizzling

Yields: 24 decorated cupcakes

Directions

Prepare cupcake/cake mix according to directions. Allow to cool on rack (normally, the mixes make 24 cupcakes).

Place wax paper on a clean working surface. Place 3-5 drops of brown gel food coloring on 6 oz. of your fondant. Cover your fingers with cornstarch and shape your brown fondant into 1 to 2 inch spheres. Make 24 of them.

Start shaping your brown fondant spheres into honeypots by flattening the top and bottom. Place on your wax paper.

Sprinkle your working surface with cornstarch. Place 2-3 drops of yellow gel food coloring on your remaining white fondant and roll out so that it’s about ¼ of an inch thick.

With a small cookie cutter, cut out small circles of your yellow fondant (about the same size as the top of your honeypots).

Brush water on the back of each yellow fondant piece and place one on top of each of your honeypots.

Roll small pieces of brown fondant into little strips, about ¼ of an inch in thickness and 2 inches long.

Brush water around the circumference of the top of your honey pot and place your chocolate fondant strip by wrapping it around the circumference.

With your decorating pen, write the word “HUNNY” on each pot.

Now, it’s time to make your buttercream. Using a stand/electric mixer, beat butter, sugar, milk, and vanilla on slow gradually increasing to high. Once the ingredients have combined and are smooth, place in a frosting bag. Frost each cupcake.

Wow - the honey pots are so adorable! I can't believe you made them with fondant. I absolutely can't wait until we get to see the Christopher Robin movie (hopefully soon!)

They turned out super cute indeed! We are going to see the new Christopher Robin movie on Monday, so I may have to make a batch of these this weekend to get the kids extra jazzed about the film.

Oh yes, you must have honey on top if they're reflecting Pooh. :) These are really adorable!
