I had a rare day off yesterday so I decided to make use of it and practice covering a cake in fondant. I haven't done this since I was about 14 in school home ec covering a Christmas cake. It's bloody stressful I'll tell you! I probably should have used proper sugarpaste but we had regal icing to use up. I think next time i'll use sugarpaste! I still have a lot of practice to do. I'm definitely a buttercream kinda gal.
The base of the cake is painted with a wash of diluted food colouring, the top is covered with buttercream swirls and handmade flowers. I'm eating a slice right now and it's delicious if I do say so myself, even if I need to vastly improve on the fondant front!
