All with a country farmhouse feel! When I am not on my blog you can find me at The Home Depot, Pottery Barn, Hobby Lobby, or the thrift store scouting my latest project!
Today we have Lois from Auntie Lolo Crafts!! I am sooo excited about this one!! I am scared on fondant and want to try it soo bad!! Lois is going to show us how to decorate with fondant and make a picnic cake!!
I am so thrilled to be a part of Country Cottage Chic’s Beach Bash! My name is Lois but most people call me Auntie Lolo 🙂
Step 1: Bake your cakes, let cool (you can do this the day before as well)
Step 2: Put frosting on first cake, spread and then put 2nd cake on top.
Step 3: “Crumb Coat” your cake or in simpler terms, cover the entire cake with thin layer of frosting.
Step 4: Take your fondant and knead it like you would bread. And form it into a nice ball. Use lots of powdered sugar on your work surface and roll out the fondant, until desired thickness.
Step 5: Pick up half the fondant and place over the opposite arm, lift over cake and take a deep breath! 🙂
Step 6: Rub fondant onto cake with your hand or “smoother tool”, cut off excess with pizza cutter or knife.
Step 7: Now you decorate! I used green fondant to make grass all along my cake
Step 8: After my grass was on, I cut a square piece of white fondant and made the blanket by painting red squares onto the white fondant.
Step 9: Making the hamburger and hotdog is so much easier than you think. Try it, it might take a few times, but I know you can do it! To make the grill marks on the hotdog, I used a food safe marker. To make the basket, I took a piece of white fondant, made a square shape, then painted it brown and made marks with a knife in it. The “flaps” at the top of the basket are just 2 pieces of white fondant, painted brown and propped up with a small piece of fondant underneath. To make the handle, I rolled out 2 thin strips and twisted them!
Step 10: I added yellow flowers made with a cookie cutter and fondant and “ants” marching all over the cake with black icing.
I hope that you will try to make this! And if you aren’t comfortable with covering a whole cake in fondant (it takes practice) use frosting for the whole cake instead of fondant, no biggie!
I would love if you stopped by my blog, Auntie Lolo Crafts and visited sometime! We also have a facebook page HERE. Thanks for inviting me to your blog Angie!
Thank Lois!! I hope I can overcome my fear and make a great cake like that!!
