fondant is a sugar dough. it has a smooth look to it, unlike buttercream frosting. when you see wedding cakes that look like they're covered in play-doh or something smooth, it's fondant.

Hi Frankeybee, icon_smile.gif
I ONLY use Fondant, if you look at my photos...
Maybe one isn't, but I love FOndant..

You can do anything with it..cover a cake, make flowers, pearls, lace, ruffles, figure etc..... it does not need refrigeration unless the cake under it need to be refrigerated. Try it, it could be a great challenge at first, but you won't regret it you decide to get into is an example of how it looks on the cake:
