TIPS FOR WORKING WITH FONDANT
Fondant dries quickly, so while working with it, always keep excess well-wrapped in plastic, as well as the parts on the cake you are not working on. If tiny cracks appear in the surface of the fondant, knead it a little - the warmth from the kneading or pressure from the rolling pin will make it smooth and satiny. Do not use water to smooth out cracks - water dissolves fondant as it is mostly sugar. Instead, use a bit of shortening on your fingertips to repair small tears. One of the best tasting fondant cake I had was made with marshmallows!
MAKE A GARDEN
Every year I make a garden. I usually plant a vegetable garden and a herb garden. It's a sure way to know that you are getting fresh veggies from your garden to your table. It is so exciting to me to bite into that first tomato. The color is so vibrant and the taste is so amazing. You will love watching the progress of your garden as it grows!
