So I went on a rampage on the net, researching everything I possibly could from tinting, moulding and storing fondant, to which types of icing and tools to use for which purpose. I also got myself some basic tools that really made everything lots more efficient and much easier to do! I had the most fun coming up with the design for spiderman & iron man, while the superman logo was the most challenging one as I had to hand paint every one and they had to look the same without the icing colour mixing with the yellow base!
To challenge myself further I also attempted to produce a DIY 3-tiered cupcake stand, which I must say, whilst it's not perfect (I ran out of ribbon, silly me miscalculated...so I had to improvise), did the job pretty well!
Sorry I only managed to take photos of the finished product, and not the process because I was too busy trying to figure out what to do! I will be sharing my research findings shortly in another post, so that beginners (like myself) who wish to give rolled fondant a shot needn't feel too intimidated!
