Whether you are looking for the perfect cake toppers for your wedding or a fun scene on a birthday cake, there are plenty of options to choose from. Here at Classic Cakes our culinary artists can create hand molded figures in your likeness!
We use fondant, a thick paste made of sugar and water, to create our characters. Dye is used to color the mixture for each individual piece – from the hair to the clothing and accessories. From the first kiss to zombie slayers, we have designed it all!
Cakes with fondant characters should be kept out of direct sunlight to prevent fading. It can get soft in warm weather, so we recommend keeping your cake refrigerated until it’s time to celebrate.
Invented in the 16th century, fondant was originally made from a mixture of rosewater, sugar, lemon juice, egg whites and gum paste. Derived from the French word “fondre” which means “to melt,” it was called this because of the way it melts in ones mouth. Cakes were dipped in warm fondant and left to dry. In the 1950s, rolled fondant was developed and began to be used to cover cakes in the manner it is done today.
There are plenty more options than just figures when it comes to fondant. We also use it in the creation of our sculpted cakes. These intricate designs can mirror your favorite hobby or the party’s theme. The possibilities are endless!
