So, with my search for different types of rolled icing (as a request from a friend who didn't like the marshmallow fondant, she wants me to decorate her cakes from now on LOL) I found this recipe: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-7060-6-Cream-Cheese-base-fondant.html
What better cake to try it on then a carrot cake. And of course I need an excuse to make a cake. And with Mothers day being tomorrow it was a great one!
close up of the carrots, do the greens look realistic enough? or do they at least get the point across?
top view. Doesn't look to bad here.
On this one you can see this fondant cracks easily. Thats okay for now. Just more practice with it I think.
As for flavor and texture, the icing is pretty tasty, though next time I skip out on the almond extract. I've never had luck with that extract, it always tastes weird to me. It also has a nicer texture then the MMF (which is chewy) Kind of melt in your mouth~ish. Lets hope the MIL likes it too, since the cake is technically for her!
comments and criticism welcome, I'm always looking to improve!
thanks for looking!
