This How to make fondant post is dedicated to Sarah.
Sarah read my post “how to make fondant” and followed my fondant recipe.
Here’s what she wrote me:
After searching the internet for bridal shower cake ideas and deciding that I wanted to make a bow on top of my cake, I searched the web for a fondant recipe. Fortunately, I came upon your wonderful recipe and read through all the comments that were very encouraging to me. I have never used fondant before but wanted to give it a try because I love how smooth the cake looks (a look I can never achieve with regular icing). I started with 1/2 a batch just to get a feel for the fondant and to experiment with it. The cake turned out great. It isn’t perfect but it still looks good. It is a four layer 10? round cake with a fondant bow on top and gerbera daisy’s all around the sides. It was a wonderful learning experience. Thank you for sharing your fondant recipe. My next challenge will be trying to cut the cake. I am going to email you with a picture of the cake.
And then she sent these two beautiful pictures:
