rarely use fondant because it always seemed like a daunting tool. I heard so many people on baking shows complain about using this tool so I hesitated to add it into my baking repertoire. But Baking my way through Bake-Off made me confront my fear of fondant. And I am so glad I did. Fondant is such an amazing tool for decorating a cake. It holds it's shape well and is a great surface for painting. While it can be bought from the store, making it from scratch is quite satisfying.
When I was researching painting fondant, I did not find much information on the process. Maybe I wasn't looking in the right places but I figured it couldn't hurt to have one more place to find out how to paint fondant with items around the house. There are commercially made paints that can be purchased but I wanted to use the food gel that I already had. Luckily I was able to figure it out!
