The 15 Most Colorful Ways to Decorate with Fondant
Sometimes, fondant gets a bad rap. It’s most often seen being used to turn cakes into decidedly un-cake-like things like monsters and cars, but it’s actually a really awesome tool for adding shapes, colors and patterns to any cake or cupcake. In fact, we’re so into fondant that we’ve even incorporated it into our Cake Baking 101 E-Class!
In this class, pastry chef Tessa Huff will teach you everything you need to know about cake baking and decorating in this e-class. You’ll learn about basic cake baking equipment, ingredients, and the methods required for baking a cake from scratch. Not to mention, you’ll whip up a batch of homemade buttercream and learn how to fill and frost your three-layer cake with tips to execute a smooth, professional finish. To top it off, you’ll learn to decorate your cake for any celebration using a beautiful, modern fondant embellishment design like the polka dot one you see below.
But before we school you on everything cake, we’re serving up 15 pieces of fancy fondant inspiration.
