Fondant is like play dough but it's edible and for cake. It's frosting! Ok it doesn't taste all that great but it's fun to cake decorate with. In our church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) we have an organization just for adult women called Relief Society. It was founded in March of 1842. So in March we had a birthday party for the Relief Society in our local congregations. We had some really good speakers and lots and lots of cake. And of course I volunteered to make a cake because I'm crazy.
Ok now for the cake. I bought some already made fondant at Wal-Mart. It was pretty inexpensive and a time saver. Plus it was dyed as well. First make the cakes (no brainer right?) Now this is called dirty frosting. Just frost the cake. No need to do it nicely, this is what will hold the fondant to the cake.
