I have never been into baking and cake decorating. Not that I didn't like it, I just never learned how. I mean...I've made cakes and used store bought icing and pre-made decorations, which is fine. I've always wanted to take cake decorating lessons, but icing intimidates me. Since hanging out in BakeSpace I've seen lots of cakes and various decorating methods. I had never heard of fondant (mmf) before and it caught my attention. The more I saw, the more I became intrigued. I'm not going to give you any lessons or even the ingredients...because I'm waaaay too new at this. What I will do is give you the source of my knowledge...DDPiesSlice!! She has an awesome blog with several entries about fondant...plus some of the most exquisite cakes I have ever seen. I was himming and hawwing about it last night and another great BakeSpace member called Grammadotcom really encouraged me and gave me some awesome tips. Thank you both for sharing your knowledge :).
Well, this is the result of my very first ever experience with fondant. I had sooo much fun!!! I'm really looking forward to exploring all the possibilities. Oh, before I forget, I have to confess that I still used a cake from a box (confetti cake)....but let me tell you...I had a blast playing with my cake "play dough"!!
