Christmas Angel

I have dessert this Christmas, and in prep for the banquet on Christmas day I’ve been experimenting with a few new ingredients. I was toying with the idea of blanketing my city with fondant. Fondant is the thick icing (made mostly with icing sugar) usually employed to cover wedding cakes- it provides a beautiful satin canvas for decorators. So the question was, where do I get me some fondant?

I spent the morning looking at recipes and fondant techniques on the internet and found a few interesting recipes using marshmallows- this apparently was a tastier option. Pressed for time, I decided to go for the pre-made option at Coles – which surprisingly sampled well!

Since I had never used fondant before, I thought I’d play around with it whilst waiting for my chocolate bowls Take II to set. It was fun and very reminiscent of play-doh! This Christmas Angel was brought into our world at around 1am this morning!
