I was actually quite worried about this post. After taking lots and lots of step by step pictures for this tutorial, I came to the conclusion that I might be violating some sort of blogger (a.k.a me) - reader (you, of course) unwritten rule. I counted and I originally came up with 29 pictures.
Yep, 29. I mean, should I post all or cut try to cut it down? If I post all, I have a feeling you'll just be bored and completely stop reading. Or if I try to cut it down, I might be excluding something that could be important. After all, this is a life changing post. What could be more important than learning how I make Avenger Cupcakes? Do tell :)
Anyway, thank heavens for techie friends who suggested I use the Frame Maker App which can combine several pictures into one thereby lessening the chances of me boring the living daylights out of you. Yey!
I have been waiting for the movie to come out since last year. After totally enjoying watching Iron Man and Captain America (yeah, I missed Thor and Hulk), I wondered how they would come together as a team. It definitely is an interesting mix.
So here it is, guys! Here's a cutie-fied version of the Avengers. I made them cute because they are all soo serious in saving the world, I thought it couldn't hurt if somewhere in the blogosphere, there exists their happy, cute as can be alteregos. But before that, here's a before and after.
See these fondant round cut-outs (4 flesh colored, one electric green and one super red)? They'll be transformed from this -
To this! Ta-daahhh! And I am going to show you how. Let's start?
