White Flag :3

            Hey guys :D

Since you hadn't guess what is going to arrive straight to your mouth, unfortunately i'm telling you the solution ;)

....This is my hobby for the moment, and I have to say that it brings me a lot of satisfactions that I hope to ispire you, oh my followers :)

We are talking about Decorating Cakes with Marshmallow Fondant :D
(Yeah, we I use marshmallow, but that wasn't the complete solution of the riddle ;P )

Have you ever heard about that? Is this the first time? If yes, I'm glad that you're going to see it through my works :D

So, lets begin :D this was my very first cake, honestly it is nothing compared to the new ones!
 Just kidding, I don't want to be presumptuous :) i'll post all my cakes following a chronological sequence.

You are going  to meet...           The sweet drowing of a silly cat!
 (sorry for the VERY bad quality of the photos)

 For a start, lets make a classical sponge-cake :)

  • 5 eggs
  • 150 g sugar
  • 100 g potato starch
  • 75 g flour
  • yeast
As usual, whisk the egg whites in a bowl.
In a separate bowl mix the yolks with the potato starch, the flour and the yeast.
Blend the two bowls together and stir it well :)
Put the dough in a circular cake pan and put in the oven at the temperature of 180°C. As I always say, don't open it for 20 minutes and then check ;)

Now we can really have fun :D!
It's the moment to see how to make marshmallow fondant :)
  • 150 g white marshmallow
  • 330 g icing sugar
  • 3 Tbsp water
Put the marshmallow and the water in a small saucepan and  microwave them to melt.
Then, add half icing sugar and begin to amalgamate them together and add the other icing sugar only if needed. It is ready when it is no more sticky :D And that's it!!
You can keep it for 2-3 months in a mason jar and colour it with the food colouring.

We can start making our little cat (or piece of cat: head, tail, paws). Use your fantasy and wedge some toothpicks in the small parts so that they would not fall over the cake.
Now we can start shaping the sponge-cake: it would become a bowl for feeding our poor cat. So, cut it diagonally. Sprinkle it with a simple mixture(in a glass: 1 part of brandy, 3 parts of water and sugar.
Fill it with everithing that you like and star to whip some cream.
Put it all over the cake in a thin layer, you need it only to glue the fondant on the cake.
Make a long thin stripe to putt around the cake and make some pawprint, words as "Milk" or what you prefer and glue them only whit water.

Place the cat on the cake, so that it seems that it is drowing, take other whipped cream and try to create the fluffy milk around the animal with a sac à poche or with a syringe.

Hope you enjoy my simple and original tutorial. It's not so well made, just because I was fledgeling, but I'm proud of it :) 

Just wait for sweeter works...:D!
