I tried to make a graduation cap by using fondant with tylose. I used the upside down petite doll pan. I do not use fondant for covering cakes just for accents. When I get the fondant piece done after having manipulated it has all these little flaws. Of course no one ever notices these things but me. I have to say watchi9ng cake shows and seeing the beautiful work done on here makes me feel the need for perfection. Which takes the fun out of it for me now. I also find it hard to get the colors just right. I used fondx white and mixed my own colors. Just to have that shipped to me was $24.55 for two lbs. I think I will have to make my own from now on. Tell me it get easier. I am a buttercream person. But like to use accents of fondant.
