“The Smooth One”


Fondant Marbling

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.

Sculpted Dragon

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.


Gold Painted Fondant Molds

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.
