Green Bow Polka Dot Wedding

Although this cake is smaller than some, it is still a lovely little wedding cake.  It was delivered to Trevitt Hall in Dalton, GA.  This bride wasn't afraid to being a splash of color to her wedding day celebration!

This time I used my Fondx to make my bow.  I have had problems in the past fashioning sturdy bows out of Fondx, but this time I used CMC Fondant Stabilizer to add to the Fondx and it made a big difference!  It made the Fondx hold its shape nicely, where tylose just doesn't cut it!

One of the things I like about ordering Elite by Fondx fondant is that it always comes with a little "surprise" inside.  Sometimes it's a dragee sampler, sometimes it's a little foam mold.  It reminds me of getting the prize inside of Cracker Jacks when I was a kid!  I used one of those foam molds to make the brooch on the bow.

  3. Adorable cake! How do you like the Fondx elite? I was thinking about ordering some - does it really live up to its no tearing, no cracking tag line? I'm getting a little tired of Satin Ice, for those very reasons.

  4. @Kristen - I LOVE FondX Elite! I first used it when I did a big 3D dog cake. I was short on one side but it stretched perfectly and did not tear or get elephant skin! I still have some Satin Ice, but I am moving all my fondant over to FondX.

    @ccchris & Kathia - Thanks!

  5. Jenniffer - thanks for the reinforcement; ordering some today! Have you found a source to order it in bulk? Global Sugar Art only sells it in 2lb buckets. Have you had good luck with the regular Fondx as well?

  6. @Kristen - I have not found a bigger pkg than 2lbs for the Elite, but I get mine either from Global Sugar Art or Cal Java online ( http://caljavaonline.com/rolledfondants1.htm ). And yes I like regular Fondx as well, it is still better than Satin ice!
