I've been intrigued by fondant for some time. It produces such flawlessly smooth and even surfaces, and amazing definition that buttercream can never achieve.
So, starting with homemade marshmallow fondant - it's so simple, it's fail proof - I rolled out clean white sheets of fondant and wrapped the mini cakes that I made earlier in the day. With the remaining fondant, I divided it into 4 parts and dyed them with colouring paste. Halfway through kneading the colours into the fondant, my arms began to tire. Oh well, at least if I continue fondanting, I'll get nice toned arms :)
Once the dye was evenly incorporated into the fondant, it was time to play with the plungers. I felt like a kid again - it was like playing with play-doh. Quite fun!
With all the flowers and leaves prepared, it was time to decorate! Simply dip a brush in a little water, and paint the 'glue' onto the cake's fondant. Now place the cut-out at the desired spot and press gently. Keep going till you get the pattern you want.
After a few hours, I finally completed my first attempt at fondant...
