I love making cakes covered in fondant. It provides a wonderful canvas for the most beautiful cakes.
One does not need to be an artist to hand paint a cake! It takes a little patience, focus and vodka. Not kidding! Vodka makes my color gels dance and is the best item to use for getting the perfect consistency.
Anywho, don't worry about tying one on with a slice of a hand painted cake! It dissipates and is flavorless.
You MAY want to put some in a glass with
some cranberry juice if you need to
"loosen up" :)
