Confession. As much as I love to bake and create awesome birthday cakes and cupcakes for my kids ( think R2-D2 cake, minion cupcakes), I have no patience for fondant. So here is my hack for when you need just a little bit for some decorating….use chewy candies like Starbursts or Now and Laters instead! Sounds strange, I know, but stay with me. Stick them in the microwave for a few seconds and roll them out with a rolling pin, then you will have a nice little piece to cut and mold for decorations. They are also much more fun to eat then fondant! Check out my uses below, they were the base of each decoration!
