Fooling with Fondant

My daughter's cooking enthusiasm has not waned. The latest adventure is working in fondant, a thick moldable icing used to decorate cakes. Or in our case, cupcakes. After making some delicious chocolate cupcakes to serve as a canvas, she prepared some white fondant as a base layer and colored fondant for decorative details.

Rolling out the fondant

One large flat sheet wouldn't do so she found a cookie cutter that was just the size of the cupcakes and made the perfect top.

Careful alignment

Cooking is a full-contact sport

She used cake-decorating tools to make the colored decorations and combined them in creative ways.



In order to ensure the process did not ruin the flavor of the decorative icing, she did the only thing she could.
