First Fondant

My good friend Vonna taught me how to work with fondant. Here is our fun time and our final product:

Thanks Vonna! That was super fun. The main things I learned: 1. Buttercream icing tastes way better than fondant (I guess I already knew that), 2. You use a rolling pin to transport the rolled icing to the cake, 3. You can cover up the bottom if it's ugly with a fondant or fabric ribbon:), and 4. If you get the fondant wet after it's on the cake, that part of the icing will have a wet shine to it even when dry.


  1. Very impressive! Are you going to do more cake decorating? A new hobby?

  2. Fun! I've always wanted to get into cake-decorating!
