    Fondant is a type of decorating using a rolled icing. Fondant leaves a very smooth finish to the cake.

    Flowers can be made with fondant by forming the petals and grouping them together to form a flower. The flowers are dried and attached to a wire so they can later be attached to the cake.

    Figures can be made by molding fondant into shapes and dried for placement on the cake.

    There are many, many styles of cake decorating: Sheet cakes, round cakes, tiered cakes, sculpted cakes.

    You can do a decorated cake using very few tools or be extremely detailed and use air brush, cutters, stencils, molds....
