It's been a while since i have posted but I felt the need to let you know.
I. Do. Not. Like. Fondant.
from wikipedia 6/23/10 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fondant
"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 flavourings are used as well, as are various colourings. For example the main filling of a Cadbury Creme Egg is poured fondant."
Dammit i love Cadbury caramel...good thing it's not gluten free. =)
It reminds me of sweet play-dough. I prefer real whipped cream decorated cakes.
Fondant to me is a fast cheap way to decorate cakes. If your a true cake artist, then make it with whipped cream...that's talent. One that I don't have but I'd admire you more if you did.
So hold your cupcakes.....Some fondant cakes are nice to look at but you wouldn't catch me eating a blanket of sugar water.
