Using fondant

rockycat | | Jan 27, 2007 05:39 AM

I'm going to be making a novelty cake soon and the decorating suggestions - not directions, just suggestions - call for using fondant to cover the irregularly shaped cake. I'm very comfortable with the baking part but I've never used fondant before. I feel a little intimidated by it.

Do I want to make the fondant myself or buy it pre-made? I have access to wholesale baking suppliers.

Are there any tricks or tips I should know about using fondant?

All suggestions that will allay my fears are welcome.
