Step 3: Prep the Fondant

For this instructable I used store-bought fondant.  First you need to sprinkle powdered sugar on your work surface.  The powdered sugar will keep the fondant from sticking.  Use the fondant rolling pin to work out the fondant so it is a little over 1/8" thick.  The fondant will be hard in the beginning but as it warms up it will become more pliable. I roll it out until I can just see the lines on my fondant mat.

Fondant can be expensive.  I also make my own fondant from marshmallows.  The marshmallow fondant tastes WAY better but it takes time to create it.  Many recipes for marshmallow fondant can be found on the web.
Will try this one
<p>Very good work i will tell my wife to do one for me :) </p>
simple yet beautiful.. love that cake
You can also make the cake flat by just flipping it over when it comes out of the oven. The new TOP is now flat and there are less crumbs when trying to icing it.
WOW that is so cool!!!
