I hope you checked in yesterday to get your hands on my Devil’s Food Cake recipe. You can also see what made my first attempt at this cake fall apart. I also hope that you’ll be inspired by cake and check into Cake Making 101 – the Basics as well as Cake Making 201 – a lesson in fondant to learn more. A friend asked me a couple days ago to throw together a cake for her daughter’s sweet 16, and this was my solution. The only guidance I had was to keep it simple and that she is a girly girl. If you are wanting to try your hand at fondant, a design like this might be a great way to go. It’s basically cutting out fondant circles with cookie cutters and then gluing them on the cake with edible glue. You could always use royal icing, but I’ve found edible glue great to work with and easy to make. Here’s the recipe for that:
1/4 tsp. Tylose Powder (you can order it on Amazon)
2 Tbsp warm water
Directions. Combine the powder and warm water together with a toothpick. It will look chunky at this point. Stick it in a small container with a lid and then put it in the refrigerator over night. In the morning it will be ready to use.
TIP #1: If you need your fondant to dry quickly, like I did, stick it in the oven with the light on and then put in the open air. You can also use a fan.
TIP #2: To cut out the small circles, use the end of a frosting tip.
You know this blog is about being a better mom. It’s been so fun for all of us to find enjoyment together around cake decorating. I’m just glad the kids are buying into my hobby…who wouldn’t? It’s cake! The girls were able to help me bang out all the circles for the cake. They always enjoy helping decorate, and this was a design where helping was very easy.
I can’t wait to share this cake with my daughter who’s ten and already a terrific baker. She is experimenting with fondant. Here is a picture of her cake (you have to scroll down a little) http://simplelivingdianebalch.blogspot.com/2012/04/simply-healthy-mediterranean-diet.html

I am sorry I haven’t gotten to your link up party. I have been way too busy and haven’t even been able to link up to my normal spots. I will try to stop by this Friday. Hopefully, life will slow down, and I’ll be able to find the time. Thanks!
Jodi, This is beautiful! I love working with fondant too, but positioning those circles on their end makes my palms sweat! 🙂 Thanks for sharing your process! Thank you for linking up at Saturday Show & Tell, hope to see you back next week! 🙂
Thank you. I have finally found some gum paste I like. Duff makes some good products, and they’re available at Michael’s now – I like is Fondant and Gumpaste way better than Wilton. The circles weren’t too bad working with gumpaste. I couple of them were made of fondant that didn’t have tons of time to dry. My palms were sweating too, and I had considered leaving it off the cake. Glad I took the risk.
Thank you for linking up this fabulous project!!!
