Do you use fondant to cover cakes before adding pleats or ruffles? Or how do you decide whether to leave iced or fondant over cakes? I do not like taste of Wilton fondant, what is best tasting fondant in your opinion and what do you use under fondant on cakes? I loved this class. Did you make dummy cake forms for practice? If so, what is the best way to make dummy cakes if I want to practice your techniques? Thanks

Also what do you use under fondant on cakes to taste good? Do you take pleats and ruffles off to c yup t cake or not? I am just getting into fondant covered cakes and have not found taste I like. Thanks, Rox

You can practice on cake dummies. It's usually inexpensive to purchase foam cake dummies. The cakes or dummies are usually covered with a thin covering of fondant before adding the pleats. Finding a fondant flavor that you like is very subjective and varies by personal taste so you'll probably have to try a few to find one you like.

I agree, fondant is not good, makes for pretty decorations, but people like tasty treats, what do you do?
