Hi all. I just joined here today in hopes of increasing my cake knowledge. I have recently developed a passion for using fondant but honestly have no clue what i am doing...LOL .. Here's my story. Baking has always been a passion, but im not the best. I have been trying to think of simple designs to start with. My biggest passion is to make one of those cakes that really takes your breath away...LOL . I have tried finding courses on learning to work with fondant, but the only thing I can find has directions that I am not familiar with. If anyone here is familiar with it, please email me when you have time. Thanks a bunch!!!!
Hi, Beth keep dreaming it will come true. Wilton have a fondant class although it limited to certian technique, its a start. Most Hobby Lobbys, Michaels, and some JoAnn's Fabric Stores offer the classes. I new also to this site, it's very informative. I have taken the fondant class, now I'm using fondant for accents on some of the cakes I have done. Which are few rather new to cake decorating. However my, mon starting me baking at a very early age. Decades Ago. LOL
Welcome to CakeCentral MominSC
The above link is for a marshmallow fondant or as we call it here, MMF.... it's not hard to do and the article will explain how it's done .. good luck and hope this helps
Hi mominSC. I'm pretty new to the board myself, and have only been decorating since I got started with my daughter's bday cake in June.
I have only used MMF so far, though I'd like to give the regular stuff a shot soon, but I'd say if you can make a pie crust, you can use fondant. I can't make a pie crust to save my life, but I can cover a cake in fondant just fine.
The MMF is great because it's so cheap to make, you can mix up a batch just to play with and it will only cost you about $.75.
Also, you can pm me for whatever help I can offer .
Good luck, and practice, practice, practice.
Welcome mominSC to CC.
I like working with fondant, have not tried the mmf yet.
