While i am still compiling all the entries sent to me during CNY (because i have no time sitting in front of the computer for past 2 weeks ^_^), let me share my 1st fondant covered caked first.
Every CNY day 9 when "Pai Tin Kong (a praying ceremony to God for Hokkien peoples) , i am sure bake a cake and bring back to my mom's place to Pai Tin Kong together..This year, in order to make the butter cake look nicer, i covered it with fondant and this was my 1st cake covered with fondant..
First, i baked a marble butter cake using an old recipe, check recipe here.
After checked few youtube videos, i was very braved and tried out my first cake that covered with fondant..And it is not as difficult to handle as i expected..
I did not apply a layer of buttercream before cover with fondant (feel lazy to make the buttercream, hehehe)..
trim the excess gam paste using a pizza cutter..
my daughter helping me on the wording using gum paste
we also made mandarin oranges and "chin yen bao"
why not next CNY you also make one ? ^_^ ^_^
