Every baker knows the “it” ingredient in decorating is fondant. It’s smooth surfaces and pristine cuts make the most amazing creations. Throw in some gum paste, molding chocolate, or marzipan and you have the most realistic visuals in edible form. While they look beautiful, they lack taste. Most people make a face when you talk about eating fondant. This is not the face we want when someone eats a Delish cake.
What’s a baker to do if you don’t decorate in fondant but you want beautiful cakes? You have to get a little more creative. We’ve chosen to use delicious things to adorn our cakes.
There are lots of ways to give a unique look to your cake without covering it in something your guests will scrape off. We feel your cake should taste just as good as it looks. Don’t you agree?
