Decorating with Fondant

Fondant is referred to by many as "Baker's Play-Doh" because of it's clay-like consistency and molding capabilities. It is a creamy confection that can be used as a filling or a covering for cakes, cookies, candies, and other sweets.

The standard fondant recipe consists of water, sugar and glucose. However, there are many other variations of this recipe including Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Quick Pour, Rolled Buttercream and Marshmallow. Fondant creations are not only visually appealing, but a treat for the taste buds as well!

Fondant can be used for Wedding Cakes, Birthday Cakes, Cookies, Cupcakes, Petits Fours, Pastries, Candies, etc.

There are many ready-to-use fondants featured on this page including Wilton, Choco-Pan, Satin Ice and Duff Goldman. You can also purchase simple shape cutters to help you get started in fondant cake decorating.

For those experienced with working with fondant, there are so many exciting things you can do to make your fondant creations stand out from the crowd! This includes trying out different fondant recipes and creating custom shapes and designs to accent your masterpiece.

Decorating with Fondant

  • Trim and smooth out your cake before applying. The cake will need to be completely flat. You can even use a fondant smoothing tool or glider to achieve the desired affect.
  • Using frosting, secure the cake to your board so that it will not move around while you are icing it.
  • Apply a buttercream base to smooth out any imperfections in the cake such as crumbs or low spots. The fondant will stick to the buttercream.
  • Let the cake sit in the refrigerator so that the surface will slightly harden. It will make applying the fondant easier. *It is recommended to let the cake cool for at least 24 hours before applying fondant.
  • Knead the fondant until it becomes the consistency of clay and use a rolling pin to flatten it out to about 1/4" or so. Dust the rolling pin and work surface with confectioners sugar to prevent sticking. The size of the fondant should be slightly larger than your cake to allow it to fully cover.
  • Apply the fondant to your cake with the shiny side facing up. Using your hands or a smoothing tool, smooth out the fondant starting from the center and working your way out. This will remove any bubbles. Trim any excess fondant from the bottom of the cake.
  • Decorate with fondant shapes, paint, stencils, ribbons, etc. To attach dried fondant shapes to a fondant cake, make the following recipe: 1 oz. ready-to-use fondant and 1/4 teaspoon cold tap water. Knead the water into fondant until it becomes softened and sticky. Brush the mixture onto the back of the dried fondant decoration and attach to cake.
  • You can purchase already tinted fondant, however, if you chose to make your own fondant and tint it yourself, be sure to use icing paste instead of liquid food coloring. Food coloring will be wet and too watered down.
  • You can add flavor to your fondant by adding Butter Flavor, Vanilla Extract, Almond Extract and many other flavor enhancers.

      Lovely lens here. I think you've covered pretty much everything fondant :) Did anyone ever see that show "Ace of Cakes" where they did princess cakes-it's just mind boggling what you can do with fondant. I will say though that I tend to prefer buttercream to fondant usually, although that Satin Ice fondant tastes good. If you're interested, check out my unique cakes website.

      The other day I made rolled fondant, I placed the cake once covered with buttercream in the freeze for 24 hours, the next day I applied the fondant, however the result was pretty sad, it seemed like my fondant was sweating once applied to the cake, since the cake was cold. Do you have any recommendation to avoid this from happening?Thanks a lot!!

      Great collection of fondant recipes. I live in Guatemala and it`s not possible to buy ready made, so I make my own. I did a pirate ship for my 3 year old`s birthday in December. It was fun, but not really nice, lol. In May, my other son turns 2 and he`s getting an Eve cake (from Wall-E), which I expect will turn out better.

      helloall of the cakes looked very nice. i have tried to use fondant to cover a cake with and i found it very hard to work with. but the cake that i was trying to cover with the fondant was a roller coaster cake and it turned out ok. but, i like to make fondant roses. i think that the fondant roses are beautiful and easier to make than the buttercream roses are to make. thanks for posting all of the beautiful cake designs!

      Tremendous! My wife PJ has been making birthday and wedding cakes for the last 30 years. She took a class at the local community college and has used her skills in making hundreds of cakes. She doesn't use your method which seems to be an easier technique than making up the shortening based icing and it wouldn't appear one would have the problems occurring with summer heat and high humidity which is disastrous to the shortening icings. Good job, how does this affect the taste?

      @miaponzo: If you put a nice thick layer of buttercream on the cake, smooth it out and then cover it with a thin layer of fondant, you can have the best of both worlds! A great looking cake that tastes delicious. :)

      Hi Janet! This is an absolutely MARVELOUS lens on fondant! Even though I'm just getting interested in how to cake decorate myself, the whole fondant thing is fascinating to me. Would you mind very much if I linked to this lens from my new site that have going? Or - are any of these photos yours (like the one showing putting the fondant on the cake) - that I could use to illustrate a section on fondant? You can tell me "no" if you're not comfortable with me linking to you - but this lens is so informative, and I really think it shows fondant in a VERY user-friendly light. Please feel free to check out what I've done so far - it's REALLY new - so I don't have tons of stuff on there yet - but I'm working hard at it: Learn How To Decorate A Cake - and if you think I could either link or even use one of your recipes and link it to your lens, I would be more than happy to do so. This is truly the best thing I've seen yet on it. I can't wait to show my mother in law! Hugs, Kath :) (PS: You can message me at my profile if you don't want to comment publicly - I'm fine with that.)

      When I was in Scotland people would get engaged years before their wedding. They would then get a fruit cake and seal it with the frosting. Then they would poke holes in the bottom and ad alcohol. They would then seal it with the frosting again. They would repeat this through out time often over a year before they would have their wedding and eat the cake. Have you ever heard of this before and know what this is called?

      This is a beautiful lens. Just this morning I covered a cake board with fondant. I'll be using it this weekend for a wedding cake. The fondant covered board looks more dressy for a special occasion. Oh, here's a tip - I was using store bought fondant that was really hard, I simply but it in a bowl with a few drops of water, covered it with a plate and placed it in the mocrowave. Before I would have just tossed it out, but because it was just to cover the board, I decided to experiment. It softened up just fine and my board seems to drying well now.

      For a beginner like myself, what's the secret to keeping it from tearing when you lay it / stretch it out over the cake? Thx.

    • Janet2221 profile image

      Janet2221 5 years ago

      @HuntAndFishGuides: Generally, fondant can rip if it rolled to thin or if it is not kneaded enough. Also, be sure you are not carrying the fondant too far. The best way to move your fondant is to drape it over a rolling pin as pictured on this lens. And many times it just takes practice! Good luck!

    • Liveliferead LM profile image

      Liveliferead LM 5 years ago

      @HuntAndFishGuides: If it does rip, you could dab the tear with water or place a decoration on it to hide it, obviously if the tear isn't to big! Good luck!

      Cool lens! I've always wanted to decorate cakes but have never had the time! With two part-time jobs, full time school, and recently publishing my first book, I can't seem to get time for anything! But your lens is pretty and the decorating looks like it would be a lot of fun! Love the wedding cake!

      I don't know what it is about fondant that I love so much. I think maybe there is something about the texture of the fondant that came on petit fours when I was a kid. I think what people use now is a little different. It made me think about what it would be like to cover a chair in fondant! This stuff really is fun, and I am going to try a homemade one. Thanks for so many recipes! There are so many fun and creative ideas here.

      I have wanted to try this for sooo long! I am a sculptor so it makes sense that I would I guess. A really long time ago I saw this cookbook on it and thought then.. get that book! But I didn't but never forgot it. I would just like to make cakes for fun.. not like with my art where there is the pressure to sell and all that stuff. As much as I love art at times the promotion of it kills the creative energy that I work so hard to maintain. OK... maybe I will make a cute little cake to start for my husband for Valentine's Day! Yay! Angel blessed lens.

      I never get bored of looking at amazing cakes such as these. My craft skill for sugar art is minimal, all I have done people have been pleased with though. Shame it is so expensive to buy more than a couple of colours. Is there a special food colouring you need to use to get the strong vibrant colours?

      What a great lens! I've always wanted to try to work with fondant because they make the most amazing looking cakes - but I've been too chicken because I've heard it's really hard to work with. After reading this I think I'm ready to give it a go!

      Fondant decorated cakes are such works of art! I'm afraid if I ever mastered the craft, I'd smack anyone who tried to cut into it! :) Wonderful lens! Great examples and resources.

      I have great luck with getting tiered cakes done, but horrible luck with it staying intact do you get the cake itself to be firm enough to hold the fondant? and if that's not the problem...any tips?
