Fondant Icing on Cake... Pure craft work :)

  • Round Cake
  • Unsalted Butter - 1 cup
  • Icing sugar - 1 and half cup
  • Icicng color - pink
  • Fondant dough -1 and 1/2 cup

  • Cut the cake horizontally so that it makes 2 layers
  • Cut off the dome formed on top of the cake(if any)
  • Mix Butter and icing sugar well(room temperature)
  • Take a cake board( the silver board on which the cake will be placed in the cake shop)
  • Place a spoon of butter mixture on that and place the lower layer of cake on that. This is done to fix the cake on the board.
  • Put one or two scoops of butter mixture on the lower layer of the cake and roughly level it to cover the cake.
  • You can place fruits like srawberry or cherry as a layer on top of the above layer...this is only optional
  • Place the top layer of the cake and give a thin coating of the butter mixture on the top and sides of the cake.
  • Roll the fondant dough(room temperature) using a smooth roller to the required thickeness.
  • Make the fondand sheet big so that it cover the full cake.
  • Carefully take the fonant sheet and place it over the butter coated cake and slightly press from cake centre to the sides so that no air gets trapped in between cake and fondant sheet.
  • Press the sides of the cake also
  • Cut the extra irregular fondant sheet from the cake sides.
  • Use the remaining fondant and mix with icing color to do the craft part :)
  • Make any shapes or flowers or bows with it and decorate the cake.
  • Butter icing can be used to stick the flower or bows..
