Have you used fondant in your cake or cupcake decorating yet? If not, why not?
About three years ago, I tried my hand at decorating with fondant and made a pretty fabulous (if I do say so myself) Princess Birthday cake for my daughter. (Ok, just the bodice of her dress was made with fondant, but I am still proud).
Since that time, the use of fondant and edibles for CUPCAKE toppers has grown like crazy, and this year, I plan do try again, BUT making individual princess toppers for cupcakes!
You know I found a few tutorials, right? AND some super fab fondant artists from whom you can purchase fondant cake toppers, if you aren’t brave enough to try your own!
First off – let’s start you off with a super-easy, incredibly delicious marshmallow fondant recipe (or you can purchase fondant from a bakery or the baking aisle of a craft store). Learning how to make cake fondant (or cupcake fondant) is fun and a money saver!
