I’ll be honest. I’ve always been a bit intimated by fondant. The results are so gorgeous that I’ve always assumed that it was difficult. When I came across a fondant cupcake decorating class at a local shop called the Cake Professor, however, I decided to try working with fondant. Guess what? It turns out simple fondant decorations that can make a cupcake look really pretty are super simple to make. In a lot of ways working with fondant is a lot like playing with play-dough.
After our teacher gave us a few tips and taught us a few tricks, my hubby and I colored, rolled, cut, and punched more fondant flowers and leaves than we could put to use.
One thing that I learned in the class is that once fondant decorations are dry, they can be stored in a cool dry place for a very long time. I am looking forward to making some fondant decorations and then using them to decorate sweets during the holidays.
I was not paid or perked for this post. I just wanted to share my experience working with fondant for the first time.
Have you worked with fondant before? If so, I’d love it if you would share any tips for working with or storing fondant in the comments.
