Let’s make delicious cakes with a helpful fondant cake decorating kit.
When it comes to covering a cake, fondants are easier to apply than creams. Well, they are like clays, just mold, roll, flatten, and you’re done. Unlike creams, you have to scoop and scrape and scoop and scrape again until you cover the entire cake.
When it comes to decorating, fondants are more flexible. You can make characters, flowers, and many more. And creams, well, you can’t make a human figure with cream, it will sag.
But don’t get me wrong. I know how to make both, and both taste great!
Let’s decorate! Have yourself a fondant cake decorating kit.
Before placing your fondant base on your cake, you must flatten it with a rolling pin. Make sure that it is wide enough to cover your cake. After that, you will now need to smoothen your fondant base for your cake. To do this, you will need a cake decorating icing polisher. This polisher will help you smoothen the top and edges of your cakes. This is done to avoid air coming in between the cake and the fondant. This way, your cakes will not look bumpy and you can decorate it with ease.
If the polisher won’t do for critical edges, you may also have this corner/edge molding fondant cake decorating kit. These are significantly designed for crucial edges especially for pointy cakes or cakes that have rectangular, star, square, and triangular shape. There are times that a regular polisher won’t be enough to smoothen the edges because they are bigger and they are just flat. Unlike these tools, they already have edges.
It will be hard to make patterns for fondant cakes manually so here’s a helpful set of cake stencils for your fondant cake decorating kit. They are available in different designs and different dimensions. With the use of these stencils, you will have neatly embossed patterns for your fondant cakes. If you will add something like edible pearls or flowers, it won’t be difficult to decorate because the patterns of these stencils will also serve as your guide.
You can try to intentionally mix accenting colors in one fondant base but that could be time-consuming. Don’t waste your efforts and settle for this paint spray gun airbrush pen. This is also actually used for non-baking purposes but it is also suitable for painting your cakes, especially those that are fondant based. With this tool, a plain colored fondant won’t be a problem. Just add a few drops of another food color on its container, shake, spray, and you will have a multi-colored fondant cake. Well, it depends on how many layers of colors you would want your cake to have.
If you will have a spray gun for your fondant cake decorating kit, might as well have these wall stencils design templates. Yes, they are for walls but you can also use them for cake decorating. These are made of safe silicone material so you are assured that your cakes won’t have toxic chemicals from it. Use your creativity and bring life to these patterns.
Fondant cake decorating also means making edible figures. Yes, we use fondants to make cute characters and objects like cars, shoes, animals, and even people. When it comes to molding a person from fondant, the head is the most crucial part. Here is a fondant cake decorating kit that could make your life easier. Just make a round clay, fit it to the face shape that you would like, press it gently, take it out, and you will already have a perfect head.
Here is a fun tool to add for your fondant cake decoration kit. You will need this for making long strips of fondants for your characters and your figures. For example, if you need to mold a girl’s hair, just pick the appropriate disc, put it in the tube, press the gun, and you will have long strips of hair effortlessly.
