Hello Zammits,

 

Thank you for posting your desserts. Can you tell me what the second picture is , what type of cake is that ? My other question is , how do you like working with fondant ?

So interesting....you made and covered the cakes with marzipan. I have never used marzipan to that extent (covering cakes) , by the pictures , it looks like fondant. (maybe its just me) .

 

Do you buy your marzipan or do you make it yourself ?

 

I use fondant depending the cake I am going to make. I put a crumb coat of buttercream first then the fondant. I have not posted all my cakes pics but I certainly do enjoy working with sugar art.

 

Did you learn this all by yourself ? Did someone teach you ?

 

Its always interesting to learn how other bakers work, what inspires them.
