My youngest daughter Shannon, age 11 was undaunted in her quest to make a rolled fondant Birthday cake for my oldest daughters 20th Birthday party this month! As you can see...it was a terrific success!
However, I mustn't let you think that I helped Shannon make the fondant from scratch and that we spent hours in the kitchen making, rolling and kneading, to create the perfect rolled fondant birthday cake. I confess, I totally chickened out!! Baking is not my forte but I couldn't let my poor baking skills keep my daughter from her quest so we used pre-made fondant.
I'm not much for cooking with prepared foods but this seemed the best idea given my unsurpassed lack of baking acumen. The fear of making fondant akin to tar paper or silly putty gave me a strong desire to find another alternative. I was pleased to find that Michael's hobby store, makes a pre-rolled marshmallow fondant in several sizes and colors. I was even more surprised to find that it didn't taste horrible.
