Emojis are slowly but surely taking over the world by storm. We're all obsessed - so much in fact that you can now make edible emoji icons. We've tried our hand at emoji pancakes but emoji cupcakes are certainly next on the list.

Step 1Level and layer the sponges and crumbcoat them with a thin layer of buttercream. Chill for 30 minutes.
Roll out the blue-grey fondant to 3mm thickness, preferably using spacers to ensure an even thickness. Cover the cake with the rolled-out fondant.
Prepare the coloured dust on a paper towel by blending the bluegrass edible dust gradually with cornflour to achieve a lighter shade.
