What can be better than homemade fondant. Just 3 ingredients and will a little hand/arm work out, you will have lovely and yummy fondant to decorate your beautiful cake in no time. Let's do it! :)

  • 1 (1 kilogram) bag Icing sugar
  • Crisco shortenning (to knead the fondant)
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  1. In a medium size bowl, microwave-safe, put in -- marshmallows + 2 tbsp water --
  2. Heat in microwave for about 30 seconds, take it out to stir, repeat (microwave - stir) until all marshmallow are melted.
  3. Stir in -- 3/4 of icing sugar -- into melted marshmallows. Mix together until combined, briefly.
  4. Sprinkle icing sugar over working surface. Dump the dough on top. Very well grease your hand all over with -- shortening -- then begin to knead. Add in icing sugar until desire consistency. Add in -- gel color -- if using.
  5. Covered with cling film then let it rest for an hour or over night at room temperature before using. Or you can, as well, use it right away :) 
  • Add a teaspoon of water, at a time, if the dough become to dry. 
  • Well grease shortening on hand while knead, as often as need. As soon as hand get sticky!
  • Use only gel food coloring and not the liquid food coloring to mix in the fondant.

Son's Birthday cake

It has been so long since my last update on my blog. I am so sorry to all my lovely followers as well as my kind visitors that take their value time to stop by .. sorry for not being there updating my blog. I have been on a holidays, far from where i live right now. Back to my dearest country i missed so much. I have spend most of my time over there, half of the world away, from cold to hot, eating and eating and eating.. not so interesting i know .. It's just because i love the food from my country so much that i try to catch up what i missed from the whole year back. As the result, i gain LOTS of weight. No complaining!

I still didn't have a chance to bake any sweet as i (as well as my whole family :D) have to lose (6 kg!) some weights. So, i will simply just share you the pictures of Birthday Cake that i make for my family last year. Interesting? :D

This one is my son's 3rd Birthday cake. Yes, easy to guess that he must like spider man so much he wanted to eat him :D
