ASo, I'm just getting into the whole Fondant thing. I took all 3 courses of the Wilton Cake classes and love decorating. Now, I'm intrigued to try the Fondant Figures I see being done. I want to try and see if I can grab that talent.
My question - these are mainly just 'decoration' for a cake right? No one really eats them? What happens after that - are they savable? Or just have to get thrown away after some time?
AIT ALL DEPENDS!!!
I work with a few people that only want to use edible materials like Rice Krispies...
But when it comes to making cakes for myself and family I like to us sticks, wires, styrofoam to help me create the skeleton of my figurines... When I use these materials I always warn people before hand that the figures are non edible...
And I mostly save the figurines especially the ones I've made for my daughters birthday.. The figures remain the same the only thing is the color of the fondant fades a bit after years..
Hope I was able to help!!!
