“The Smooth One”
You've probably seen the bakers on TV use fondant- a lot. Fondant is made with white chocolate and is slightly chewy.
Think vanilla tootsie roll.
It's rolled out, then draped and pressed onto the cake, for a smooth, matte look. We make our fondant in house with high-quality white chocolate.
We can use it to create...
Tree bark or woodgrain
Ruffles and waves
Sculpted Figurines of people, animals or objects
Realistic looking flowers
Just about anything you can dream up!
Very few cake designs need to be fully covered in fondant. For most designs a little here or there will allow you to get whatever effect you’re going for.
Our buttercream skills may be sick, but there is a lot that fondant allows us to do. Molded pieces & figurines are the most significant. But even stripes made in fondant are going to have cleaner, sharper edges than if we pipe them in buttercream.
