OMG! Mrs. Rooster and I need to open up our own bakery!! We are awesome!! (Okay sorry, just had to toot my own horn for a minute.) I've always heard of fondant icing being very finicky and hard to use, so I have never even considered using it. However, Mrs. Rooster was very adamant about making a fondant cake, and I am thinking she is loco in the cabeza(crazy)! But she talked me into it and I am glad she did! We kinda cheated a little and bought pre made fondant. Surprisingly the store bough fondant was very easy to use. Did you know it came in so many colors at Micheals? Okay I will stop talking about it so you can go whip up your cake mix. Listed below are a few tips and our pictures (this is a semi tutorial, not real detailed.).TIPS:
Hot and cold are your best friend, yes, get out the hair dryer
Use ALOT of cornstarch, you don't want it sticking to the counter top
Watch several video's on YouTube, so you can become a pro!
Patience, Patience, Patience and Smooth, Smooth, Smooth
Don't roll too thin, it will tear
Be sure to "dirty" ice the cake before fondont, YouTube will tell you this too
