Hi,
I finished this cake last night (around Midnight). If you have any feedback, critique ~ please feel free. I appreciate the time taken to view my cake.

Oh, and this is my first cake using my own vegan MMF recipe (VMMF icon_rolleyes.gif ) but I still have some kinks to work out in the "laboratory" ~ BUT it is DELICIOUS! thumbs_up.gif
You all were right about the difference in taste vs. regular fondant!!!!


Thanks for looking. icon_smile.gif

Not exactly... I found a few recipes for vegan marshmallows, played around and "tweaked" a bit... then I adapted a MMF recipe found on here. I had to make a few changes to the recipe, and I can PM anyone the recipe who wants it once I work out one minor issue. (when I roll it out it doesn't quite "crack" but pulls away a bit ?? I think I need a bit more cornsyrup. icon_confused.gif ) Store bough vegan marshmallows would have been easier... but hey are SO expensive. icon_eek.gif

And yes, it is handpainted. Does anyone know how to tone down colors when you are painting directly on cake? My pink was brighter than I wanted it...

Thanks icon_smile.gif

You could add a touch of white to the color before painting. I would like your recipe, my daughter would love cupcakes w/ a good vegan icing.

yes I would love the recipie when you are happy with it...!!! as far pink I would say only a tiny bit of pink in vodka.. or if you wanted to mute the color add some 'dirty water' what you rinse your brushes in or some brown or a tiny bit of green. It's like painting with water colors and getting a realistic shade requires mixing and practice...play around and have fun. You are thinking way too much into it because that cake looks wonderful!
