hello fellow cake bakers! i'm about to attempt decorating a cake with fondant. this will be my first time using fondant...so any suggestions or advice? i'm making a gift box cake for a baby shower in a couple of weeks. i know practice is the key....but how is the best way to practice decorating without having to bake an actual cake? thanks!
(i've attached a picture of a cake i made using buttercream also.)
after icing the cake, chill it for a few hours, spray a midst of water on the cake, then cover with fondant.
youtube has a few great videos that show you how to cover a cake perfectly with fondant good luck!
