Fondant on my Cake
My fondant class met tonight. This time, we were supposed to bring in a cake, frosted with fondant. We would work on learning how to decorate while we were in class.
This is the finished product. I did some in class, but most of the work I actually did after class because we spent all the class time learning our tools, but that sort of thing doesn't make a very pretty cake. I kept squishing up my "finished" fondants; I wanted a pretty cake.
The back flower is the one I made the other day. I made the front daisy this evening. You can see how I've learned a few things in this class! Thin is good. Plus, it tastes better when it's thin.
I am pleased with how the sides turned out. The star-flowers are so cute, and I like the dots. So now I need to deliver the cake to its intended "victim." Hopefully she'll let me have a taste!
