    Fondant is great - IF you make it yourself!

    Great book! And fondant is NOT disgusting - if you make fondant yourself from scratch...when you do that you can add flavorings too...I agree that store-bought is awful, but homemade is great.

    Great Book

    Really enjoy having this book on my shelf. I bought this book specifically for the Noah's Ark cake because I was doing a cupcake tower for a babyshower and it was the only book I found that had an example for my top peice. The other ideas are also really cute ideas. I do not always follow the instructions, but it gives a good visual. I have to agree that not all fondant is disgusting. The store bought kind is not great tasting, but I am a true believer that fresh is always better. You can make your own fondant from marshmallow which is quite delicious and not difficult to do.

    cake decorator

    Great ideas, but hate that EVERYTHING is fondant. I despise fondant- it's disgusting & many people agree with me- so I stick to tradtional frosting. Cute ideas in here, so I can convert them into frosted cakes.
