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.

  1. These are very cute. You did a great job! As for fondant, I too think it looks beautiful but tastes disgusting. Sad, isn’t it?
    I wonder if you could get the same clean look from using a royal icing that is a little runnier than usual. The icing you use on your sugar cookies (which are just darling and are inspiring me to take a stab at them) would work, no? Then they would be yummy to look at and eat.
    Here are some funny and adorable cakes you should take a look at http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/ Just for the record, you would be in with the adorable ones in the second post as you scroll.
    Did making the cakes taller work for the Happy Birthday cookies? If it does, I am so copying you for my son’s birthday in December. I promise I will give you all the credit!

  2. lol, oh you are full of great ideas and sweetness!!! 

    Thank you for even THINKING of me with that Cake wrecks post!! (Never thought I’d say that!)lol 

    And making the cake taller/cookies shorter does make a difference… I totally think you should tackle it and make one for your son!!!  I would LOVE to see pictures!!  And I love to see creativity in others, so you would be inspiring ME!!

    Have a blessed day my dear!

  3. I love the little pumpkins. They remind me of Cinderella actually!
    And I commend you for making spiders and other not-so-delicious things look yummy!

  4. Tastes like poo!! LOLOL I love how you mix in your honest opinion along with the delicacies.
    I’m all for rabid bat petit fours though. You could make some sugary foam to put at the mouths!!!!

  5. I agree girl if you don’t have business cards and aren’t at least making things as a nice little side business, you need to! You’re so talented and no doubt people would love to buy a special cake or cookies from you for their special occasion.
