Daaang howd you make this like how long did it take?!!? and what type of fondant do you use just out of curiosity?
Because I always just use regular fondant you buy at Michaels but im trying butter cream fondant by 'duff' for the first time..do you know if its any good(taste wise and flexibility wise)?
I am sorry I ask so many questions but till I have a car to even get to some type of school for cake decorating im stuck teaching myself.
(plus i took the Wilton classes at Michaels)

This took about 3 days to build. I use a brand of fondant called Felchlin from Switzerland. I've never heard of buttercream fondant... or michaels... I'm not based in the US lol...

OH wow your in a different country :) NICE although fondant is a European thing correct?
And ok Butter cream fondant actually taste pretty good(for fondant) its like 19.99 for a container but it seems to work very well. Its pliable but only thing that made me mad, was when I tried to thin it out so I can put it on a cake it starts to fall apart.
There is a show that I used to see on tv called 'ace the cakes' and the guy named Duff on there has his own line of decorating items including his fondant.

Michaels is an arts and crafts store for people who have hobbies, no lives, or just likes to be artistic in there own ways. There is on the left side of my store your scrapbooking, jelwery making, soap/candle making, wood and cheep paint.
Middle is flowers, wedding decorations, invites, etc and what we call the 'forest' because of all the silk greenery.
Right is cake decorating <3, decorations for your house, fine arts stuff and yarn stuff.

Thanks for the explanations. :)

I don't understand what you mean by fondant being a European thing though? It's used all over the world for years and years... Americans just like putting it on TV... :p
Alielove19's avatar

and yes we do like it on tv..
bahaha
