I love fondant. The medium lends itself to so many uses. Like recreating a 1.5" medallion into a 8" cake topper for DJ and her spiritual group!!! I so enjoyed this challenge. I ended up rolling out a piece of fondant quite thick and etching the design into the fondant, then airbrushing it with food coloring and sheen to give it a metallic look. DJ took a photo of the medallion early on and I enlarged it to make sure I got the right details. When I went to deliver the cake, I saw the medallion in real life and it was SO SMALL!!! I had been looking at an enlarged photo of it for so long, that when I saw the medallion in real life, it was tiny in comparison :)
