My First Fondant

Saturday, February 6, 2010

This month is full of firsts, I guess.  I have never even seen a cake covered in fondant up close before, but I just made my first one.

Tomorrow is my second daughter's sixth birthday, but we're celebrating tonight due to the Super Bowl.  She begged for a pink cake with white dots, so I thought it was the perfect time to delve into fondant.  I have been addicted to "Ace of Cakes" on the Food Network for several months now, and I have been absolutely fascinated by fondant and gum paste ever since. 

To say that fondant can be frustrating would be a massive understatement.  By the time I got the hang of it, though, I was really enjoying myself.  My daughter's dot idea switched to flowers at the craft store, so here is my finished cake, complete with pink fondant and white flowers with a white fondant trim:


  1. Donna, you are one impressive SAHM!

  2. Thanks, ladies! We dug into it last night, and it was a huge hit. :)

  3. What a sweet cake! you did a Fab job on it! I have always been fascinated with cake decorating but just have not sat down to try it myself!
    If you like Ace of Cakes you will LOVE LOVE LOVE Amazing Wedding Cakes

  4. I'll have to check out the listings for that one. Thanks, Michelle!
