My First Fondant Cake

This is my first fondant cake.What do you think? I am using bc brownie mix,buttercream and marshmallow fondant.My first batch of mmf was so sweet that i redo another batch.This batch is good! Not too sweet and blends well with the cake!

For the buttercream:

  • Enough for 6 cake pops plus a 8" cake.

You will need:
  • 150g butter(softened)
  • 75g icing sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon milk powder

The Preparation:
  1. Beat butter and sugar till pale and creamy.
  2. Add essence and milk powder till well combined.

For the fondant:

  • about 500g fondant

You will need:
  • 200g marshmallows
  • 300g icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Some icing sugar to coat table/board

The Preparation:
  1. If using big marshmallow then cut into half.
  2. Add water,microwave for 1 min-high.
  3. Stir till all melted.(add colour as this stage if any.)
  4. Stir in 250g sugar till difficult to stir.
  5. Transfer to coated table/board.
  6. Knead and add in remaining sugar and more sugar as you knead till not sticky.
  7. Cling wrap and store in airtight container at room temperature.(it will harden a little so that its easier to deco.)
For the cake pop(makes 3)(simple version):
  1. Crumble some cake.(about 1 cupcake size)
  2. Add 1 tablespoon of buttercream and mix well.
  3. Roll the cake into balls.(If mixture is too dry,add more buttercream)
  4. Use the pop stick to leave an indent in the balls.
  5. Refrigerate the balls for 1 hour.(With holes facing down)
  6. Remove and coat the tip of the pop stick with melted chocolate.
  7. Insert into the hole made earlier.
  8. Refrigerate upright for another 15 minutes.
  9. Remove and deco accordingly with fondant.
(You can also dip the cake into melted chocolate and leave in fridge for 1 hour,before removing to deco.)

The Assembly:
  1. Crumb coat the cake and cover the with fondant.(you can crumb coat a day before and leave in fridge,remove from fridge on the day of decorating and let it sit till it comes to room temperature.)
  2. After covering and decorating,leave the cake at room temperature.Do not refrigerate as the fondant might weep.
