Some fondant basics can be found here.
Here are some cakes that I decorated using fondant:
|Someone asked me to make this for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, so I made it bright and colorful to go with their style.|
|I colored this fondant by swirling blue and red fondant into a larger mass of white fondant.|
|This was for Gina, in celebration of a pinecone she illustrates about named Piney. The pinecone was made with slivered almonds which I stuck to buttercream frosting on top of the pink fondant.|
