Whether you are a beginner or seasoned professional, fondant can be intimidating and often frustrating. Let Jenny help you conquer your fear of this pliable sugar dough as she shares her best tips for handling, storing, and coloring fondant to make gorgeous, professional-looking decorated cakes.

Fondant is created with just a few simple ingredients that come together to form an edible claylike paste. There are several brands of fondant available so it’s important to choose a brand that works best for you based on your climate, price point, and availability.
