Wilton Course 3: Class 2

Today I made my first “official” fondant cake. I learned how to cover cakes, make fondant roses and make fondant bows. I have to make 40 fondant roses by next week. Holy man.

I used  a buttermilk marble cake and put raspberries in the icing in the filling. Do note that it’s not a good idea to use frozen raspberries – they melt and like to escape, causing a mess. So learn from me and use fresh raspberries instead!

Have you tried using fondant before?

    Impressive! :) I’ve never tried fondant, but have been wanting to…I love how “clean” it looks!

    Oh my, the cake looks amazing! The shape, the color, the idea – all great!

    On a side note, I looked at the pictures of your plant and I *think* it’s a lemon tree, but I could be wrong – sadly, I only know details about plants I own. However, I did have a lemon tree a few years ago, and yours looks very much like it. But, I can’t be sure =/

  3. Wow, that looks really professional. I love the bow. I did fondant once, and once was enough. Never again.

  4. That looks great!

    I still need to get my photos posted. :)

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    OMG – I AM IN LOVE WITH YOUR BLOG!! You have so much gluten-free stuff and I’m like you, always on the lookout for additional GF info!!! YAY!! I’m so glad you found me so I could find you!!

    And that cake – gorgeous!! I took a Wilton’s class a couple of years ago but had to drop it before we got to the fondant. Now, looking at your awesome cake, I’m even more bummed!!

    Great looking cake, I love how the bow flows so naturally. Did u like working with fondant? or would u prefer gum paste?

  9. doreent88 – I’ve never actually worked with gum paste yet. I could let you know once I have?
