Gumpaste & Fondant the Wilton Way

Tonight was my final decorating class. After cutting out and molding flowers for 3 weeks, this fourth class was the final cake project.

I just loved this medium! It reminded me so much of modeling clay. So many possibilities and so many ways to express my creativity. yeah, IN SUGAR!

I made a yellow cake with vanilla butter cream icing, covered in marshmallow fondant.

It sits on a fondant covered cake board, and the green fondant was rolled on the Wilton ivy
 impression mat. (So easy to do!) The Gerber Daises were rolled from colored gumpaste and the grass around the cake was cut from more green fondant.

To each piece and decoration my children asked, "can we eat it?" Yes, in fact it is all edible.

I really loved this class and can't wait till Wilton unveils it's new 4th class. Look for it next year. I don't have any details other than it will be an advanced decorating class. I will be there with my piping bags and apron at the ready.

Happy baking everyone!

  1. Wow, you did a fabulous job! One thing I've learned with cake decorating is it takes patience and practice more than anything. So often people say, "I could never do that." But really they could, it is just like everything else, you need to learn and have the right tools.

    BTW, your cake is amazing!
