Fondant

Fondant, sometimes referred to as sugarpaste, originates from the word “fondre” which means “to melt”, named so because it should melt in your mouth.

At Sweet Nothings Cakes our fondant is a smooth, firm yet creamy, vanilla flavored icing that does just that! All fondants however, do not necessarily possess these qualities. . . some of the packaged brands that are widely available at craft stores, as well as “home-made” fondant are often reported to be too sweet or tend to be gum-like and rubbery. Since we feel strongly that all fondants are NOT created equal…we do provide a sample at all bridal consultations so you may judge for yourself.

Underneath the fondant… are layers of delicious cake and filling that are iced with buttercream before a thin layer of fondant icing is rolled out and smoothed on the cake. This creates a very elegant look as well as sealing in the freshness, making for a wonderfully moist and delicious cake.
