Fondant Cakes

220. I was busy several weeks ago making three very special individual cakes for three beautiful girls. These sweethearts worked very hard to accomplish a great deal and I was thrilled to go out of my way to make each one their own little cake to celebrate.
It was for an Awards Celebration in our church. All year long I worked with each of them and was so please to see them graduate.

A young lady in our church works at a local bakery and was able to order everything we needed from sheet cakes to fondant and frosting.
I only needed three little cakes so we took a single layer of a full sheet cake and divided it into 6 equal parts.
The frosting was buttercream. It was so delicious!
We first placed a dollop of frosting on our board, then placed the doily and dolloped more frosting. Then placed the first square of cake, frosted again and topped it off with another cake square.
The key at this point is to get the frosting as smooth and even as possible. It helps the fondant to lay smoothly over the cake. Since working with fondant before, I was able to cover the cakes easily and only had a few folds and wrinkles.
We rolled small pieces of white fondant into small little balls to line around the purple cake. Then we rolled white fondant out and cut small stars to decorate the blue cakes.
Then we wrote the girls names across each cake and decorated with butterflies and stars.

To cover the edge on the blue cakes we used white ribbon to run along the bottom edge.

The girls were thrilled and loved their cakes so much.
If you would like to see my post from last year of my first adventure with fondant just go to "Miniature Cakes With Fondant".
