I have a love hate relationship with fondant. Mostly hate actually…I had no idea how difficult it is to learn how to use fondant. People swear to me that after you get the hang of it its actually easier the just straight icing but my first attempt was riddled with rips and tears. I do have a vision of doing a pink ruffled fondant cake for my baby Georgiana’s first birthday so we’ll see if it happens…Since I’m in the wedding industry I’m always blown away by the wedding cakes that I see. Below is a cake done by the amazing Sylvia Weinstock for my good friend Ariel Yve’s wedding. This cake was FLOWN into Santa Barbara from NYC and had an innumerable amount of sugar flowers. Wedding cakes are art! Do you think my cake compares?
