I am making a little "candy bag" type of package for a fondant sample and
I want to put Le Fondant, La Fondant, or Les Fondant, or whatever is grammatically correct, on the package. Kind of like a cute little bag of candy you would see in a boutique somewhere.

Anyone that checks out Bakerella on a regular basis knows what I'm talking about, with the little candy button packages she featured this week, but I want to make sure when I do it, it's correct. icon_biggrin.gif

Any help with this would be much appreciated!

It would be "le fondant", and did you know that the word "fondant" actually means "melting"? I guess that's because it looks like something melted smoothly over the cake.

icon_smile.gif Thanks! Hmmm....melting. Like fondue? No wonder people ask for "fondue cakes!!"

Shoot. I was hoping it was Les Fondant...looks cooler. icon_cool.gif

Le is the masculine singular, la is the feminine singular, les would be plural of male or female....
