Quilt cake anyone? Fondant can be a wonderful decorating tool. However, one of my earliest mistakes working with fondant was assuming that it would hide my cake’s imperfections. But as I progressed in my decorating skills, I found creative ways to use fondant’s revealing nature to my advantage. Namely, by layering fondant over an edible form.
I started with a body form to lay under the fondant “blanket.” The body form is made from the cake scraps shaved off the top to level the cake, and a small amount of icing for binding. Essentially, it’s a body made of cake ball!
Happy baking, folks!
