So, my goal is to make the perfect cake. I want flawless fondant and butter cream. Is that too much to ask? I have a pantry full of cake decorating books with instructions, but I haven't found any that explain the intricacies of applying perfect fondant. I find that every time I use fondant, no matter what I do, after I apply and get the perfect look, I leave the cake to set up for a while and when I come back to decorate I find air bubbles or wrinkles. Agggh!!!

Is there a book out there that explains the problems one might encounter while working with fondant and how to over come these issues?

Thanks so much!

Toba's book is pretty detailed. Most book ive found though don't go into the real "specifics" for Fondant.

There are a few videos on Youtube that demonstrate practicing with Fondant. Maybe you can try that out.

Okay, I am convinced. I need these videos. I ordered all three without any hesitation. I am ready for more, and seeing as there is no mentor or advances classes conveniently located around me, and the pictures on her web site are amazing, I am sure I will be happy with this decision. Thanks.
