My First Fondant Experience

My roommate Sydney and I recently got to help one of our co workers, Peggy, who was making a cake for a Christmas party at a local orphanage. I had no experience with fondant before this adventure.  Peggy showed us the ropes and taught us how to mix the colors and make the presents.

Our fondant balls.

We like to call her creative fingers Syd.

Our handy work.

Our presents.

Peggy's cakes for the party.

Those are some of the prettiest presents I have
ever seen.

I always enjoy exploring new creative avenues, but fondant is a world I may not visit too often. It is very tedious. To all that make fondant cakes like my sister in law I am seriously impressed with your creativity and attention to detail.
