I have a cake someone wants me to do in the shape of a Black Berry (the phone not the fruit icon_wink.gif ) I've search and the one's I've found are covered with fondant. I've never used fondant and thought about BC, which I know I can get all the details and effects using this.

I really want to try it with fondant but I don't know a thing about it. If I use the premade Wilton fondant do I add anything to it to cover the cake? I picked up a Wilton Course 3 book at Hobby Lobby and it said to add GumTex to fondant to make roses with so it will be easier to work with. Do I add GumTex to the fondant to cover the cake?

I've read alot about the MMF, is it easier to work with than Wilton?

Sorry for all the questions and this being so long but I'm lost...HELP! icon_cry.gif

Thanks guys in advance!!!

first...don't buy the wilton fondant...tastes terrible. not add gumpaste. that stuff is not made to be eaten.
fondant isn't that hard to work with. try making one of the recipes here. there are several that are easy to work with and taste great! icon_smile.gif
