    Fondant is gross, but I get its purpose. I try and remove as much as possible before I eat the cake. Great video though, and super helpful tips! You make it look super easy, but I know that’s not true! 😅

    I am making a 70th birthday cake for my moms birthday party. I searched 70th birthday cake ideas and found one I like that is just the numbers 70 but it looks like its covered in Fondant instead of icing with circles cut out of a different color of Fondant. I have never used Fondant before. Was wondering if there was an icing I could make instead and then just cut out fondant circles to put on the numbers for the decorative part? I have the picture downloaded but didn't know how to show you what I was talking about.
