The coated confectionary decadence of fondantelegance tailored to personal and sweet perfection. There is perhaps no other cake that presents itself with such a grand effect as the wrapped, smooth layers of indulgent sugary appeal with rich, sweet cake awaiting inside. Pure delight.

Fondant is a type of icing used to decorate cakes that offers a mysteriously seamless layered confectionary appeal. A thick, sugar paste of decorative topping. Fondant icing, also commonly referred to simply as fondant, (fɑndɑnt in French) is termed as an “edible icing used to decorate or sculpt cakes and pastries”. In French the word refers to “melting” and is derived from the same root as “foundry” in English. Interesting. Rolled fondant was derived from traditional British fondant recipes of pouring the sweet, thick concoction over a cake and allowing it to harden to seal in moisture. Poured fondant is a creamy confection used as a filling or coating for cakes, pastries, and candies or sweets. “In its simplest form, it is sugar and water cooked to the soft-ball stage, cooled slightly, and stirred or beaten until it is an opaque mass of creamy consistency”. British immigrants are said to have brought their recipes to Australia where changes were made in the 1950’s to advance the art of sugar craft. Of note, the earliest “rolled fondant” recipes found in American cook books date back to the early 1980’s. Who knew? Perhaps considered as a newer art form within the industry of baking it is no wonder that creativity with fondant has risen to the ranks in creativity of sugared wonder. Although fondant can be bought ready-to-use it is the skilled art form of the baker that creates the fondant from scratch and embellishes with unique and elegant wonder that my attention focusses upon. As artisans of sugar craft, the creations that result are to the sheer delight of the guests that are smitten with their elegance and beauty. The artistry that goes into these confectionary wonders is craftsmanship and experience in sugar, for certain.

In appreciation for the elegant details and grand, sculpted statements that await the world. A visual celebration of masterpieces of sugar….

I fell in love with these sugared beauties since the moment I first sighted these creations of distinction. As with everything, taste must prevail. It is the elegance of simplicity that truly creates a memorable confectionary creation. Creating a spectacular, elegant presentation for those events of life that require stunning celebratory confections. As for the first fondant cake I required to be designed for our own personal celebratory event? It was a cake with embellishments of gold with a striking “pop” of color with a sugared orange poppy…vivid & sweet recollections, indeed…
