    See an easy way on how to make mini cakes for wedding favors or as an edible gift for Christmas or any other special occasion. This works best with mud cakes or fruit cakes as you need a rich dense cake base for this method of decorating mini cakes. The packaging idea in this is not just the cupcake box & the ribbon and bow – it’s the fondant icing itself as it’s used to wrap in your cake & helps to keep it super moist. Check out the other edible treats & packaging ideas in the Dessert Network playlist.

    Information about fondant:

    I am using a type of icing called fondant icing which is a type of sugar dough (used on wedding cakes). You can get it from your local supermarket or specialty cake decorating supplier. You can even make it. I usually buy it in white & colour it by using food dyes & mixing it through. Link here for how to colour white fondant with food dyes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3llmKZ0TuyE

    For darker colours like black, bright red & bright green I buy it pre coloured as it’s harder to mix the darker colours. These colours in fondant are more sticky due to the dye content so I usually mix a little white fondant through it to make it easier to work with. It can be sticky to work with & changes depending on the weather in your area – it absorbs moisture from the air so can be sticky to work with but it normally dries when exposed to air so you need to wrap excess fondant up in cling wrap and then a zip lock bag.

    It may be hard when you take it out of its packaging so you would need to knead it to make it more workable as it warms up and becomes softer and sticker in your hands. To stop the stickiness of fondant you can dust your surfaces with corn flour. How to make a simple corn flour bag for dusting your surfaces: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqHkkEXNgkE

    It comes in many brands – I use Pettinice RTR Icing by Bakels (brand) but there are many other brands like Satin Ice, Queens and Orchards.

    Tylose powder can be used to mix through your fondant so that your figurines set harder & quicker than just fondant alone. You can leave it out but you risk your figurines sagging and not fully drying in time. You can get it online or from your specialty cake decorating supply shops. You can use it to make an edible glue as well. Link here for the edible glue – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vs3HD3V0d2M
