I tasted my first ever fondant cake last Sunday. It was Charlie’s pink fondant cake. By the way, Charlie is my third godchild. Her full name is Sage Charlotte Erzulie Kong. Quite a mouthful, isn’t it? Blame her over-brainy parents. I, a girl who is often fond of weird names, don’t even have any idea where they got “Erzulie”. LOL! Well, I wish you all the best in the world kiddo!
Now let us go back to the cake. I personally think you could never go wrong with chocolate, unless of course if the celebrant is allergic to it. Haha! So yeah, the chocolate cake was absolutely delicious. I did not even feel any tinge of regret even though I got a slight stomach ache after. The “tummy ache” was not due to the cake, by the way. It was due to the fact that I was already full when they decided to cut and distribute the cake. And that I totally ignored the slight discomfort because I did not want to miss the chocolate cake. Talk about gluttonous. Yes, yes… I can’t resist yummy food. Can you blame me? I love food. However, I did not find the fondant as delicious as the cake inside it. The pink fondant – yes, it’s pink … I suspect that was because of Chin, but I’m not entirely sure – tasted like thick sugary gooey flour to me, which was why I left most of it on the plate and only heartily attacked the cake. One apt description for the fondant would be “slightly sweet and floury bubble gum”. Oh well, it looked really pretty though, and I think that is probably one of the main reasons that many pâtissiers like using fondant over plain frosting.
