Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Fondant What are you most proud of? Jessica's course couldn't have come out at a better time! Had I enough time, my stripes would have come out cleaner. Either way, for a rushed job, and being my first time applying this technique, I'm happy with the end result. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would advise anyone using this technique for the first time to make sure you have just enough shortening on the wax paper. The first time I applied the shortening, I wiped too much off and my pieces slid off when I lifted the paper. Afterwards, it was a breeze and a fun project! It is definitely something I will use again!!!
