We spent some time talking to the Wilton specialist at Michaels about fondant. I just love the look but I wasn't sure if that's the way I wanted to go or not. After talking to her I don't think it is. We have a tub of Duff's fondant. In hot pink. I figured it would be good for the test cake to see if I liked working with it. It tastes okay but definitely not something I could see eating alot of. I figured we could use the fondant for decorations. The Wilton lady showed us how to make roses so the hubby & LM made some today. They did a nice job.
They used cookie cutters for the bunnies and egg. A nice look for Easter but not for a first communion. I was mainly looking to get the tasted down and I think we did that. I want really simple & elegant so I'll work on that. Sometime this week I plan to make the same devil's food cake that Laurie did. I'll see which one is the winner and make that for the first communion. Stay tuned for part 3- the devil's food cake!
