I'm still playing with the art of cake decorating. I will give you a run down in the steps it takes to cover a cake.
First you dirty ice or crumb coat your cake.
You then dust down your work space with corn flour.
Roll out you shop brought fondant, not to thin as cracks will appear.
The size of the fondant should be slightly larger than your cake.
You then take a smother and smooth your cake.And trim off any excess fondant.
I then made some royal icing, and had fun playing.
Wet down the pointy bits with a fine brush.
My take on a mini Lavender cake.
Not bad what do you think?
