Sydney realized this is our 200th post; we wanted our 200th post to be special for our readers as well as ourselves. I must have gone through hundreds of ideas, only to realize I had already shown a tutorial or given the recipe. We had a month of cake making between Valentine’s Day and Mardi Gras parties (plus a few proposals and a baby shower). Sydney is not a fan of buttercream, anytime I bake a cake specially for her it is either an Opera Cake or a Joconde, until she tasted Massa Grischuna Fondant.
Fondant and gum paste are both fun decorating aides, they remind me of polymer clay. The cake we decided to create is 6-inches/ 15.25-cm covered with a layer of marzipan (yum!) and a layer of white fondant. Of course the cake has a delectable filling, and a marshmallow crumb coat (Sydney, as I mentioned is not fond of buttercream).
Celebrate with Bobbie and Sydney by creating your own Fondant/ marzipan cake; they would relish seeing your culinary artistry.
