Ways To Decorate A Cake With Fondant

Here are some ways to decorate a cake with fondant:


  1. Covering the Cake with Fondant
  • Start by getting some fondant, which is like play dough but for cake decorating.
  • Next, roll out the fondant on a clean, smooth surface that's been dusted with cornstarch or powdered sugar so it doesn't stick.

  • Carefully lift the fondant and drape it over the cake, smoothing out any wrinkles or bubbles as you go. Be sure to trim off any excess fondant using a sharp knife.


  1. Making Fondant Flowers
  • To make fondant flowers, start by coloring your fondant with food coloring until you get the desired color.
  • Then, roll out the fondant to a thickness of about 1/8 inch and use flower-shaped cookie cutters to cut out the shapes.
  • You can use a small ball tool or the back of a spoon to gently press into the center of the flower, creating a slight indentation.
  • To add some dimension to the flowers, you can gently curl the petals with your fingers or use a toothpick to create texture.






  1. Adding Details with Fondant
  • Fondant is a great medium for adding intricate details to your cake. You can use it to create letters, numbers, and even 3D shapes.

  • To make letters or numbers, simply roll out the fondant and use small letter or number cutters to create the shapes.
  • For 3D shapes, you can roll out the fondant and cut out the shapes you need. Then, use a ball tool to create the desired shape and texture.

Overall, decorating a cake with fondant can be a fun and creative process. With a little bit of practice and patience, you can create beautiful designs that are sure to impress your guests!
