First Time Fondant

We have a rule in my house – No Christmas decorations until AFTER Mom’s birthday (December 12) There’s no rule about no Christmas baking! Why would anyone put a ban on baked goods..? So, I’m starting early. 😀
These cakes are gumdrop cupcakes. Apparently gumdrop cake is a big deal at Christmas time but I’d never heard of it. I got some fruitlets candies and they actually had a recipe for gumdrop COOKIES right on the back…Weird? Maybe. So, these are pretty much just vanilla cakes with cut up gumdrops in it. Pretty great, right?

I’d never used fondant before, though I’ve admired it for awhile. I really felt like you can do anything with it! Now that I’ve used it, I know it’s true. I LOVE it so much. It’s sooo fun!

I stuck to bows this time but maybe next time I’ll branch out a little more. I wanted to make a couple Christmas gifts though. 😀 So, this is my first time using fondant and it was a great experience!

    We have two birthdays in December, one on the 16th and mine on the 22nd. I used to wait until after the 16th to decorate, ’cause I know how hard it can be to have your birthday overshadowed by the big C, but in recent years we just try to make the birthday special in its own way. There’s no way to get away from all the craziness on the 22nd, but it can be toned down until after the 16th *wink*.
