This time I decided to make it with those mini fruit flavored marshmallows. I had to sort them by colour first. I figured they would add a little bit of flavor to the fondant so I wouldn't have to add much flavoring oil.
These are cakes? Great examples of creative bakery At the Highland Bakery in Atlanta GA these amazingly detailed cakes are made by Karen Portaleo. She got inspiration to be a cake decorator one day when she noticed that the cakes in her friend’s bakery didn’t have any creations.
Oh man, this was a really, really bad week. And you know it must be bad, because I'm usually not so text-happy here on my "Blame the Moon" blog. First off, my left hand is killing me.
Begin with a small 1"- 1-1/2" ball of firm gumpaste. Start pulling a cord from one end of the ball until you get the desired length of your heel. Using the guide below, find a design for the type of heel you want to make. Using your hands, form heel to desired size and height. I usually form a 2 – 2 ½ inch heel. Then place the ball end of your heel on the board and flatten.
