In a large bowl, whisk together the butter, baking powder, salt, fennel, cayenne and paprika until light and fluffy. Incorporate MASA in 2-ounce increments (4 tablespoons), whisking until light and fluffy, about 15 minutes total. Divide MASA and CARNITAS filling evenly between corn husks, roll and tie tamales, and steam for about 30 minutes. Let cool slightly and serve over Manchamantel sauce.
