Fondant tips and tricks!

                Okay so I am going to cover some fondant tips today!  Fondant isn't my favorite I can admit, but it is an amazing tool to making BEAUTIFUL cakes.
               So first of all.  I have tried making my own fondant.  I heard that "oh you should make your own fondant and it will taste much better!" well...that part is true, it does taste better than store bought fondant, BUT I have not found a recipe thats very good to make the fondant actually looks and rolls out like fondant lol
So having said that, I normally just buy, you guessed it Wilton brand fondant.  It's just so convenient.

                      So first step is to try and figure out how much you are going to need.  It's much easier to pull out the whole package if you are not sure.   Once you pull out what you need then you start kneading it with your hands until it gets more workable. 
                   Okay so if you are covering a cake, then you are going to want to use a huge fondant roller to get it all nice and smooth. Since this is kind of hard to explain, I want to post some videos on youtube that I really love, great help for fondant!






I will post more in depth details for decorating with fondant, like flowers and things later.
 Thanks for reading!
