I thought it couldn’t hurt to share how I achieved the stucco effect on my Don Quixote cake. It is a pretty simple technique, and to honest, I had fun doing it. Cover a double-barrel cake first in chocolate fondant, then in white fondant. Wrap each layer of fondant around the barrel because 1. trying to cover over by going over the top on a double-barrel is awful; and, 2. the roof covers the top so you don’t have to worry about it! :) The best part is that you don’...

That tip came in very handy late night when I had to smooth the plain and obviously couldn’t use a typical smoother.. i must say I was actually amazed at how good it wor...

I felt compelled to be able to devise a well decorated… For recipe, poins...
