We found some really amazing Gingerbread Houses and Gingerbread Cookies that are highly detailed and decorated with fondant and gum paste (visit here). Fondant is made from water and sugar and sometimes lemon is added to flavor the fondant and I have fondant where almond is added. Fondant is used for covering pastries and confections and creating a smooth surface for adding decorations and if you watch any of the popular tv shows like Amazing Wedding Cakes, My Fair Wedding David Tutera and Cake Boss, you see magnificent cakes and nearly every single cake is covered in fondant or has fondant decorations. If you are creative or want to try your hand and creating some super neat Gingerbread Houses this year then why not try working with fondant and seeing just what is possible. Like David Tutera says, “don’t just dream, but dream BIGGER”! Let your imagination soar!
