Rated 5 out of 5 by Resq from The "Vibrant Vines Cake" was the basis and inspiration for my very first fondant cake! My 9 yr. old granddaughter wants to be a pastry chef when she grows up. I had never decorated a cake and needed to begin learning so I could teach her. After reviewing the book, "Celebrate with Fondant" I decided to elevate the cake before draping the fondant. I was a little concerned that it would be difficult to cover a heart shape. It was very easy and came out perfect, without a seam. I made my own romantic design with a heart and love birds for my Pastor's anniversary by using template #30, 1977 and #113, 2006 with royal icing. I printed the design, traced it onto waxed paper then used a pin to copy the pattern in the fondant by making holes every inch or so. Because I'm a beginner, I have just a few tools. I wanted a lace design and was able to accomplish that by using a #3 tip and placing small dots using the picot technique shown on this site. I created a delicate pink and white pastel edge by following the bag striping technique under coloring icing. Attending a class would be difficult for me because I live in a rural area and have physical disabilities. This site is awesome!
