Package Cake

Had learned this technique in class and it was more difficult to work with rolled fondant on a square cake than a round cake because of the corners. There was alot of rolling to make the square big enough to cover the cake. And alot of stretching and pulling. I had to work fast before the the fondant dried up. The colored fondant didn't dry as quickly. Personally, I love the look of the smooth fondant, but am not too fond of the taste. It was more work for fondant cakes than buttercream. Now I know why bakeries charge more for fondant cakes! It was worth the effort, and the decorating was fun! I chose red for the holidays. It does look like a package, doesn't it?
