From last few days I grew an interest in Fondant cakes. Seeing lots of wonderfully decorated fondant cakes by my fellow bloggers forced me to take a risk to make a fondant cake. Inspired by their creativity I went to the shop and bought Wilton’s ready-to-use Fondant Roll.
1. Fondant roll by taste is very sweet. So when you will prepare the cake use sugar less than what usually you add.
2. If you feel that your fondant is getting hard put it in to the microwave. But not more than 3-4 seconds. Fondant gets hot very soon and it can burn your hand. If you still think to make it more soft then add a second more. Each time keep on checking.
3. Keep some vegetable shortening or butter handy by the side of your fondant cake. Whenever you feel the fondant is getting sticky put little bit of butter or shortening in hand.
4. To stick the designed fondants on the cake rather than using water use butter. You can also use water. But as much less as you can.
