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.

Specialty Poker Table Cake

I had a lot of fun creating this casino and poker themed birthday cake. Also the outcome is a very fun-looking cake that resembles a poker table. Everything on it is make from edible products.

But not only the outside was colorful but so was the inside. It was actually two cakes stacked on top of each other.

Most exiting to create were the hand-drawn fondant playing cards. While it seemed like a challenging, almost daunting task at first, it turned into a really fun project that helped me believe more into my own abilities.
