A Day With Fondarific



So you want to fondant a cake? It's not as hard as everyone makes out and creates a spectacular presentation. And, like most things, it gets easier with practice.A lot of people who make cakes think there is some mystery to working with fondant.  I say with a little knowledge to help you out you can just dive right in and start making awesome caket Fondarific made fondannt decorating such a breeze.



Fondarific is revolutionizing the Fondant World, manufacturing a high quality gourmet fondant in the USA with 13 flavors and 14 brilliant colors.   Our fondant is great for the beginner as well as the professional Cake or Sugar Artist.  With Fondarific you now can go back to enjoying the art of caking decorating.

This another trick that I discovered while using the fondant.  DO NOT start at the base of the cake. Remember that extra 4-8 inches? Start on the table, then cover the side, then take the remainder of the fondant sheet across the cake, down the other side and you should have a somewhat equal remainder on the table on the side opposite your starting position.

This is the trick that none of the books tell you. It is this extra few inches all the way around the cake that make it go flat on the sides, rather than hanging like a table cloth (with too many folds).

Using a flat-sided glass or fondant smoothing tool, flatten out the top of the cake, square up (or level off) the corners and smooth down the sides.  Using a small paring knife (a pizza cutter also works), trim off all of the fondant excess that is on the table. Be careful with your cutting as you don't want to pull the fondant back away from the cake. 

Here are some photos that will tell you what happened during our demo:

I have worked with a couple different types of fondants, wilton, fonderific and satin ice. I must say, sorry wilton but you have terrible fondant. Terrible! Anyway, fondarific is great, its soft, stays soft, tasty, easy to work with. I always have a tub just incase I run out of my main fondant. If your looking for a starter fondant fondarific is great!
