It's tasting season over here in WI, and since we're still in a "what is fondant?" area, I'd like to present it the best I can, since I love working with it.

How do you tend to showcase fondant at your tastings?

My 4" single layer cakes (they get 2) come bare-naked so they can taste the different icings I offer. This has been very popular, since the cake can really shine through then. I've put a heart cut-out of the fondant on one of my tasting plates and covered it until right before the tasting, but I'm not sure that is the best way.
TIA! thumbs_up.gif

I don't put it on the cake, but if they want to try some I usually have some with me that people can try if they want to.

A heart shaped cut out sounds like a really cute idea!

I use heart shaped cut-outs in small plastic cups. If I happen to know what colors they are using, I will use that color fondant.

i just make a small ribbon rose and place it in the middle of a plate which also has a swirl each of vanilla and chocolate buttercream.

I cut my cakes up into small sizes (I use loaf pans) then I fill plastic cups with buttercream and then a few different fillings. I put a cut out heart of fondant on top of the buttercream (that way it stays soft and pliable).

ps. I love the idea of doing a heart in their color...very cool.

I also prepare heart cut-outs. I keep them covered with plastic wrap until it's time to taste.
