New to the world of cake decorating? You’re probably familiar with buttercream frosting, but what is fondant? Fondant is a type of sugar dough that can be rolled out to cover your cake for a sleek, smooth finish. It’s made predominantly of sugar, corn syrup, and water melted over heat and cooled to produce a dough like consistency.
Fondant is used to cover the cake and for decorating it as well. The moldable, shapeable nature of fondant makes it the perfect medium for everything from small ribbons and bows to elaborately modeled sculptures. The first step to working with fondant is to knead it to soften it up. Once softened, you can roll it out to a thin sheet or start molding it. If you’ve never used fondant before, don’t be afraid to try! It’s fun and it’s something the whole family can enjoy learning together.
If you’re in the business of dessert, adding fondant to your sweet creations can substantially increase your profitability. Whether its a small character atop a cupcake or a burst of flowers streaming down a cake, fondant opens the door to your creativity. The time and talent poured into your custom desserts will easily allow you to go from cake maker to running a profitable business.
