  1. You are SO creative, Robbie. Even before I went gluten free I was never much of a baker, but I always loved the specialty cakes in bakery windows. You could probably put them out of business.

    Probably a dumb questions, but can you eat fondant figures? If you don’t, how long do they keep?

    1. Thank you, Madelyn. You can eat fondant figures but they are very sweet. If you don’t eat them they last for quite a long time – up to one year. Some people I have made these for have kept them that long. I don’t usually keep them for more than 3 months thought – I don’t like the idea of keeping edibles for to long.

      1. Thanks for responding, Robbie. Does that mean that there is less sugar in the fondant they cover cakes with when they want a very smooth surface (in place of bumpy icing)? Also, how are marzipan (like used to make fruit decorations) and fondant different?

        You are the only person I’ve ever known who does this, so you’re getting all the questions. 🙂

      2. I am pleased that you are so interested so happy to answer your questions. Fondant creates that lovely smooth and glossy finish you often see on cakes. Generally you would only use fondant icing for a sponge cake though, it doesn’t work as well if the cake is very rich and moist as the moisture doesn’t go well with fondant. You need to apply a thin layer of butter icing or jam to the surface of the cake so that the fondant will stick to it. Fondant is very sweet. There are other icings that I sometimes use which are less smooth. I like butter icing which tastes really yummy and royal icing which sets really hard. I use royal icing like cake glue usually. For a less sweet icing, cream cheese icing is very nice. I use cream cheese icing for rich cakes like red velvet or carrot cake. I have made figures out of marzipan but I prefer fondant because it is easier to work with (just like play dough) and also I find a lot of people don’t like marzipan.
