First attempt with Fondant. Yellow cake, chocolate icing, homemade marshmallow fondant. I much prefer the marshmallow fondant because it is sweeter (and cheaper) than the pre-made stuff. Mixing the color caught me by surprise. I thought I used a lot of dye and still didn’t get past pastel versions of ‘No Taste’ Red and Royal Blue.
Notes for next time: be prepared to use a lot of dye to get a true color and use gloves!
Halloween Cake Balls
A 2 layer chocolate/vanilla zebra cake with chocolate and vanilla buttercream. There are a lot of zebra cake recipes online that call for equal amounts of alternating cake batter and being very precise about the process, but I found those ‘stripes’ were too perfect and didn’t really say zebra when cut. Vary the amount of batter at each addition to get more organic stripes in the cake.
Tootsie rolls were a special request for event theme.
