Hello everybody! Today I’m going to share a cute cake decorating technique that you can take & twist to fit many different themes. The idea is to create a raised pattern on top of your cakes or cupcakes with fondant. Today, we’re going with a very simple and sweet raised heart…
First, I’m going to make a fondant pearl border. I love silicone molds and the bead maker is no exception. If I could get away with it, I would put a fondant pearl border around every cake :0) I’m using the 8mm size– you can find them at lots of online stores, including this one… http://www.sugarcraft.com/catalog/gumpaste/beads.htm
Now…for the heart! Start by creating a nice, even snake of fondant about 12″ long. I rolled out my fondant with a smoother, to help make it nice and even. (You could also use an extruder or just roll it out by hand.)
Arrange your snake into a heart shape and attach to the top of your cake with a little bit of water or light corn syrup. Mine is a 6″ fondant covered cake.
Come back again soon!
