Cakes on Pinterest. Breathtaking and Impossible. They are Objets D'art. They are Objects of Desire.

Then comes the decorating, and this can be by icing, ganache, or fondant. Fondant is a workable mixture of almond paste, sugar and magic which is placed into molds or rolled. These creations can be colored or even gilded. Right now I am fascinated by fondant. Here are my latest experiments into this occult art.
