I have never worked with fondant before.

But I kinda liked it.


I am rolling out fondant for ‘petit fours’.

If you clicked on the link above you saw that I chose the easy version and used Oreo Cakesters.

Now that I have a little experience under my belt, (not to mention a few Oreo Cakesters, yummy!)  I just might try and make them from scratch next time.


I’m pretty sure that there is supposed to be a smooth edge and no folds at the bottom.

Oh well.


I have a theme in mind.. can you guess? 🙂



Listen.  I have to be honest.

I tried to be hip and cool and make something very festive and seasonal.

But I cant!

I don’t like bats.  I don’t like spiders.  So I knew if I was going to be making them they had to be pretty.

I do not want to eat (much less look at) a scary spider or a rabies infested bat!

So I made them white.


These are my petit fours.

Halloween style.

I am pretty sure thats an oxymoron of some sort.




This is my version of a spider.  White fondant covered in white sprinkles.


Although I think fondant tastes like poo, it was really fun to work with!

In addition, a sweet reader pointed me in the direction of her homemade marshmallow version.

I just might have to try it.

Then maybe, I can actually eat what I make.
