When I was first learned to work with fondant, I found one of the hardest parts was actually covering the cake and having it look smooth. I struggled with pleats around the bottom, cracking and tearing fondant and corn starch or powdered sugar spots all over the fondant.
I looked at pictures and instructions, watched youtube videos and read forums...there are many tips you can find and its very helpful and sometimes you just can't wait to thave a perfect touch to take order. Since I always believe practice...practice...and practice will perfect youR cake..so I made my decision to accept order and improve it along the way....and that's how I built my confidence....and of course my prime target is to make at least 3 tier wedding cake..insyallah.
This "hantaran" cake I made for my daughter's housemate..simple chocolate cake with yellow and chocolate covering.these two color is her wedding theme. Dont really have a smooth touch..since it has been raining the whole week and I found out that the area am staying is quite humid so..its not so good for fondant..it dry up late. Anyway I still get it done...simple "hantaran' cake.
