Flawless Fondant DVD review

flawless-fondant1

It was with excitement that I received the three dvd’s (Perfecting the art of buttercream, Successful Stacking and Flawless Fondant) from the talented cake designer Sharon Zambito. I decided to start off with the Flawless Fondant DVD as I decorate most of my cakes with fondant.

Sharon shows how to prepare the cake so that it will not only make the covering easy but also make the cake look beautiful when it is finished.

You will see what kind of equipment she is using for the job. I really love the blue silicone mat so I just had to buy one;-) Then you will be guided through different ways on how to roll out your fondant, cover the cake and how to smoothe the cake. She shows that on both round and square cakes but also on difficult shapes like petal and hexagon. You will also see how you can decorate with impression mats, crimpers and pearls to make it look even better.

The part I love is where she shows how to get rid of air bubbles, white dust on the fondant and how to cover up small marks on the cake. The Flawless fondant dvd have also a bonus dvd with a small taste sample from Perfecting the art of buttercream. I think it is a “must” have if you are new into cake decorating because of the great step by step guides and it will help you to not give up if you have problems with your fondant. I also think that those with more experience including myself can learn from it aswell.

Happy Caking!

    Dear Ms. Louise,

    Thank you so much for sharing so many helpful tips and information in your web site. It took me weeks to be back here because I didn’t add this to my favorites the first time I visited. The long search is all worth it! I’m very glad to be back and this time, I have added it to my favorites. I wish I was in your country and visit you and watch you work your magic with your creations and get to know you better (you leave a positive impression to your readers). Well, maybe someday. :)
