Cake Design #1

Lets talk about this Cake Design. This is fondant based cake that I prepared along with my neighbor friend.

It did take around 6 hrs to prepare & decorate this one. So it took around 2 hrs to prepare the cake base and approx 4 hrs to decorate it.

Lets learn more about fondants. What are they and how it is used in Cake decorations.

Fondant is is one of several kinds of icing-like substance used to decorate or sculpt pastries. The word, in French, means “melting”, coming from the same root as “foundry” in English.

Types of Fondants

Poured fondant is a creamy confection used as a filling or coating for cakespastries, and candies or sweets. In its simplest form, it is sugar and water cooked to the soft-ball stage, cooled slightly, and stirred or beaten until it is an opaque mass of creamy consistency. Sometimes lemon is added to the mixture, mainly for taste. Other flavorings are used as well, as are various colorings. For example, the main filling of a Cadbury Creme Egg is poured fondant.

Rolled fondant or fondant icing, which is not the same material as poured fondant, is commonly used to decorate wedding cakes. It includes gelatin (or agar in vegetarian recipes) and food-gradeglycerine, which keeps the sugar pliable and creates a dough-like consistency. It can also be made using powdered sugar and melted marshmallows. Rolled fondant is rolled out like a pie crust and used to cover the cake.
This particular in picture is Rolled fondant and it’s raw material is available in market.
