Butter Cake with Fondant Frosting




  I wanted to make something special for hubby birthday.After lot of thinking, I decided to make fondant cake. I wanted to try fondant cake for very long time but was bit scare of the process.I got the recipe from my friend and tried my hands on it. As you can see I didn't get perfect frosting but then it's only my 1st trial, but the cake tasted yum that my hubby finished half of the cake :)You can also make cream or butter frosting instead of fondant for this cake.

  • Here is our Fondant is ready for decoration.
  • Dust the work surface with confectionery sugar and then roll flat the fondant,using the rolling pin.
  • Take out rolled dough slowly over the rolling pin.
  • Cover the cake evenly without forming the air bubbles.
  • Cut the outer layer,using knife. Separate it out and keep it aside for making flowers.
  • Use the uncoloured fondant which we kept aside and make it as a small balls.Keep it at the side as borders for the cake.
  • Roll the dough which we have kept separately for making flowers and mix few drops of violet colour so that it appear more darker.Mix yellow colour and orange colour with the white fondant,separately.Using flower cutter,cut the flowers in different sizes,arrange it one above the other.In middle keep the small orange round ball.
  • Apply piping jelly behind the flowers and arrange the flowers on top of the cake.Complete the decoration by giving the same white ball borders on the top.
  • My daughter wants her contribution also in the cake.So i let her to write the wording for her father.
