Re: cake decorating

I'm so excited, I'm planning on making marshmallow fondant tomorrow and using the decorating kit DSD got me for Xmas.

I'm going to attempt a 🌹 and ❄ cupcake topper. I might also attempt an orchid.

Re: cake decorating

Oh, good luck!!

The only fondant I have ever used was stuff I bought specifically for decorating and it tasted okay to me. I have never made it from scratch.

Re: cake decorating

basically marshmallows & powered sugar - some recipes call for added butter and water

Re: cake decorating

I did it!!!

and now to hijack my own thread -

most of the recipe/books I'm referencing (their formats work best for me) are foreign (but English)

they refer to the "bench (counter)"
and I found myself thinking things such as I need to put crisco on the "bench-counter"
