Wilton Course III: Class 2

My very first fondant cake! I was excited about working with fondant, and it turned out to be really easy once I got the hang of it. Kneading it may give me carpal tunnel, but I was beyond pleased with the final product. All said and done, the decorating ended up taking me close to 2.5 hours to complete, but a lot of that was instruction time in learning how to knead the fondant, roll it out, cut it, etc. I think I might be addicted to fondant now – making the decorations was so much fun!

Next class – doing a rose in fondant and learning some additional flowers with royal icing. And then the finale – a two-tier cake!

  16. Thanks Caitlin! For the fondant corkscrews, I cut thin slices of fondant and wrapped them around dowel rods (kind of like how you wrap hair around a curling iron), then slid them off, pulled them however tight or loose I wanted, and then let dry. I had SO much fun with this cake!

  17. What a pretty cake! I love the pink ribbon. This cake looks like it would be perfect for a bridal shower or baby shower.
