Peach Wedding Cake

To Fondant or not to Fondant, that is the question.

I am often asked what is "Fondant". Well Fondant is not butter cream icing. But what it is, is a very soft, pliable sugar based rolled out dough, that is formed over a butter cream iced cake. It has a taffy like, mild vanilla or almond flavor. My Fondant is soft and delicious. It's very smoooth porcelin like finish is what the in-style bride is looking for. And it's abilities to be made into any shape or design is almost endless. It's so versatile and durable, its perfect for the High Standards of creativity, that our Southern Utah brides, puts on us cake decorators.
I have made everything from fondant roses, orchids and callalilies to "Mad hatters & Whimsical fairy tale" cakes to nature's "Grand Canyon" and "Zion Canyon Walls". It is simply amazing what can be made by talented hands and sugar. It is only limited by your imagination.

This little jewel was a real challenge. The bride wanted a Damask look, but she wanted a unique look instead of the stencil look that everyone else is using. So I hand painted a stylized design on all 4 sides. The design matched her look that she used throughout her reception. Everyone including the bride was amazed by this beautiful cake. And I was very proud of my finished work. Definitely an art piece.
