The 40th birthday cake is a great looking cake, isn't it? It is a pretty simple design you can make with fondant your first time. Honest...just read your instructions and you will be able to do it. It helps to have a Wilton Roll And Cut Mat
and a Wilton Fondant 20 Inch Rolling Pin
to work with. I took a Wilton's fondant course at a local bakers supply shop and it was great. I got some books, the basic tools including some cookie cutters and icing tips and learned all the basics. We could make flowers, bows, and we even decorated a cake in the four weeks the class lasted. If you can take one...do it. You will be glad you did. If you cannot, don't worry. You can learn all the basic steps yourself. I like the Wilton Gum Paste and Fondant Lesson Plan
. It gives you step by step instructions and pictures to help follow each step. And you can choose the Wilton 2116-108 Fondant and Gum-Paste Student Kit
that also comes with the tools you will need.

The easiest recipe for making fondant is the marshmallow fondant recipe. It is made from marshmallow cream and sugar. Just mix the two and stir, stir, stir. Stir the mix pressing it up against the side of the bowl until it begins to form a ball. Then it's time to knead the dough. Get the details at Marshmallow Fondant Recipe.
A Pourable Fondant Recipe
This is a pourable fondant icing recipe. You cook it, stirring the entire time and then you pour it on top of your cake. It's the kind of icing you would find on petite fours. It only takes about ten minutes and it is an easy way to decorate a cake.
The ingredients you will need are:
Confectioner's Sugar...6 cups
Light Corn Syrup...1 tablespoon
Combine these ingredients into a small saucepan. Put the heat on a low setting. Stir until everything is mixed well. Keep stirring and let the ingredients dissolve. Use a candy thermometer to make sure the temp of the mix deesn't go over 100 degrees.
Set your cake on a cooling rack and put a a larger dish or cake pan underneath. This will catch the extra fondant that may spill as you will be pouring it onto your cake to glaze it.
So pour the warm fondant on the cake or cupcakes..whatever your dessert is. You want to make sure the entire cake is covered with the glaze so tilt the cake a little to make sure you get some glaze on the sides.
If there is fondant on the pan or dish you used under your cooling rack you can scrape it, re-heat it and pour it on your dessert again or you can put it into an airtight container and store it in the frig for the next time you need it.
There are plenty of how to make fondant icing recipes you can find. And don't miss our fondant cake pictures!
