First time making fondant cake

by Esther
(Atlanta, GA)

It'll be my first time making a fondant cake. I'll usually bake a regular cake with whipped topping - I wanted to challenge myself and try fondant cake - any tips on decorating such as flowers roses? What is the easiest way to make designs such as flowers and roses? I.E: If I'm making a rose, do I shape the pedals and just stick them together like clay?

From the editor:

Hi Esther,

The easiest type of Roses to start with would be ribbon roses, which are made by butting a ribbon of fondant about 1/2" wide and rolling tightly until you have about 5 layers. Fan out the edges until you like the look of the rose and you're done. Attach to the cake by brushing the back of the decoration with a tiny amount of vodka or other clear alcohol and placing where needed.

Good luck.
