Fondant Play

on August 16, 2012

I decorate cakes with my mother-in-law as a hobby. K loves “helping” and playing with the fondant.

If you have never used it before, it is essentially clay made out of sugar. You can buy it pre-made at the store or make your own cheaply with marshmallows and powdered sugar. There are a lot of easy tutorials online. You can dye it different colors with gel food coloring.

It is a great play medium for kids. It is edible and molds easily. It makes K feel like a baker. K often plays with my fondant tools but kids can easily manipulate it with just their hands. It does have a ton of sugar, so let them eat a bit sparingly!

Today I had to make fondant bride and groom bulldogs for a shower at my church this weekend. K used my tools and made a cement truck and cookies. I also made an elephant and lion for him. They eventually got squished into cookies too.

Sorry for the cell phone pics today. I left my camera at home. 🙂
