Making Vegan Fondant

Vegan Fondant Ingredients

As cake decorator I had to adjust customer’s taste and design preferences, but sometimes there are even dietary restrictions to comply with.

When I received a request for vegan wedding cupcakes with fondant decorations I was a little hesitant at first, but then I accepted the challenge and set out to make vegan fondant (since I have never seen it for purchase).

In the end I was successful in creating the fondant and the fondant figures for decorations.
