OK so I'm going to be making my friend a cake for her kids birthday. She gave me a picture of what she's looking for..


only she doesn't want fondant frosting...

which is good because i've worked with fondant ONCE, and i'm not very good at it...

SO... any tips on how to go about this using just plain frosting.?? Any advice, links, ANYTHING would be great!!!

does she just not want fondant frosting because of the taste?  Because there is a marshmallow fondant recipe out there somewhere (forget where, but if you search you'll find it) thats pretty good.  I've done it a few times and everyone is surpirised at how good it tastes.

Otherwise, I'm sure if you just use a thick frosting you could pull it off, tint some black, some orange and some red with paste food colouring  and have fun!

Found the marshmallow recipe if you're intereested

You can do a buttercream icing and use the "viva papertowel" technique.  I'm actually in the process of making a cake for a friend at work (her son's girlfriend)...the picture she gave me was fondant, but she didn't care how I did it.  Google it up...Viva papertowel technique makes the buttercream very smooth looking. I am going to pick up some papertowels today as I am making my icing tonight.  A quick little tute...make your buttercream icing....ice your cake/cupcake, let it crust up just a bit and then lightly press a viva papertowel over the icing.  Hope that helps a little.

Have you tried rolled buttercream, it looks like fondant but tastes like buttercream.  The only drawback is that if it's warm at all it melts quick. Give it a google search for recipe.  I've used the all recipes site for the one I used. It got rave reviews
