I made these cupcakes for the office warming of ClimateWorks Australia. They are doing a fantastic job promoting a low carbon growth plan for Australia and have a great video with CP (carbon particle) explaining it all.
For the cupcakes, we wanted to showcase the 3 sectors this plan is based on: agriculture and forests, renewable energies (such as wind and solar energy) and energy efficiency (using adequate light bulbs, electric cars, etc).
For the 4th cupcake, I wanted to do CP, the carbon particle, in a party mode but this proved to be the most challenging of all! I had to do two trials using different fairy floss and painting it grey but by the next morning the fairy floss had dissapeared and it was just a black hard candy blob with very big eyes and a giant party hat…
In the end I had to do CP out of fondant and it was such a hurry I couldn’t event take pictures of it! Oh well, everybody was happy with the cupcakes and that’s all it matters!
Here are a bunch of CP’s before melting away!
