Ingredients

  • Two-layer cake of your choice (9 inches)
  • Frosting of your choice (in a pale color)
  • White and dark brown ready-to-use rolled fondant
  • New paintbrush
  • 1 tablespoon clear vanilla extract or water
  • White pearl dragees
  • Fresh strawberries

Directions

  1. Place cake on a serving platter; spread frosting between layers and over top and sides of cake (save 2 teaspoons frosting for decorating cake).
  2. Roll out white fondant into a 16-in. circle; place over cake. Smooth top and sides of cake; trim excess. (Keep unused fondant wrapped in plastic wrap to prevent it from drying out.)
  3. Roll brown fondant into 16-in. x 4-in. rectangle; cut with a 3-in. x 2-in. diamond-shaped cookie cutter. Dip paintbrush in vanilla; lightly brush over a diamond. Secure diamond to side of cake. Repeat. Decorate with dragees, securing with reserved frosting. Top with strawberries. Yield: 12 servings.

I made a strawberry cake and tinted some of the fondant pink. I used heart shaped cookie cutters and attached the pink fondant hearts to the cake as instructed. It was beautiful, tasty and a hit!!!
