Tinker Bell

Feb 20, 2012

This was for my very precious niece’s 3rd birthday. I made all the flowers and butterflies first, then let them dry and harden.

Then I cut out a Tinker Bell shape from white fondant and painted it with food colouring, then added sparkles.

Then I put it all together on top of a little house cake (using 2 thin chocolate bars to allow the roof to overhang over the base of the house)

I realized when it was all together that Tinker Bell won’t even come close to fitting in the door, but I think that’s ok.  The birthday girl liked it even if it didn’t make complete sense.

You are amazing! Are the flowers and everything that you left to harden made out of standard marshmallow fondant? How long did you let them harden?

yup, it was just the marshmallow fondant. they didn't dry as hard as I would have liked, especially when out at room temperature they got a bit soft and lost their shape a bit. maybe more icing sugar next time? do you have any suggestions? i put royal icing between the two pieces of fondant that made up tinkerbell, and that dried really solid!
