I'm going to make a cake like this one: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1036213.html

She has several colors of bingo balls, and other things on the cake. I see she said she used gumpaste for some of it, but I was just going to use fondant.

1. do you think it's alright to just use fondant?
2. do I have to color the fondant first (each of the several colors that are there) or do you think I could color it after somehow?
3. Also, one more question...do I have to ice the RCT's that I make the slot machine out of, or can I just put the fondant right over the RCT?

Thanks!! icon_smile.gif
