Fun with Fondant Class

The boys had fun participating in a fondant class with the homeschool group!
Here are some pics from the day:

Ethan is learning how to carefully lay the rolled fondant over the cake and then cut around the edges.
James is working hard to roll his out!

After the fondant is on the cake then comes the fun of creating designs for decorating!

Ethan created a hot air balloon and a butterfly!

James went with a cowboy!!
Emmy and the other "littles" had fun decorating their own cupcakes! Here she is with her friend Bekah spreading the frosting on (or eating it?)!

Mollie had some help from Mrs. Jette...

...but didn't need any help eating it!!

This was the first fondant that I actually like the taste of! Although I did not get to play with it much it seemed very easy to work with! Thanks Dawn and Shannon for teaching us how to work with fondant and for sharing your recipe!

Fondant Recipe
1/3 cup soft butter
1/3 light corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 lb confectionery sugar

Combine all ingredients in the bowl of your mixer and mix until well blended. Knead briefly and wrap tightly in plastic wrap then chill.


  1. This class was a lot of fun! And the little ones had a great time too. Your pictures are way better than mine. No fair.

  2. Wish I had been there... thanks for the recipe I can't wait to try it! Great job boys, and girls!
