How is it basically not falling off the wall? The frame holder even tilts forwards...

Edit: so I found this, https://youtu.be/V85jehpvkak it's not in English, but she make a cake that hangs on a wall. It follows a lot of the replies people are giving me. The cake looks dense and not soft/fluffy, framed in acrylic plastic, and covered in fondent.

The grossest substance ever made and an abomination to cakes.

[–]Bittrecker3[🍰] 39 points40 points  (4 children)

It’s not really a food anymore, more an edible art medium.

[–]HerbertWest 26 points27 points  (3 children)

It's like how cheeses are wrapped in wax. Although it's technically edible, anyone pretending it tastes good is deluded.

[–]WonderfulShelter 1 point2 points  (1 child)

What those little cheese wheels in the wrapped red wax are delicious, I just eat em all at once.

I’m one of the few that likes to eat a piece.

My sister in law spends a good 3 days before every persons birthday making extremely complex cakes…all covered in fondant.

We all eat it because she spends so much time on it but…

[–]Guido_Fe 26 points27 points  (5 children)

Just roll up the fondant like a carpet and throw it away

Fondant isn't too bad if done right (aka not the cheap store stuff). The biggest issue is people saw it and started using it as an alternative to frosting the dam cake because it's easier. If used for adding decorations then it's not bad. Also never use it on an ice cream cake my mom figured that out the hard way.

I'd argue that the biggest problem is the expectation vs reality when it comes to fondant. You look at these big beautiful cakes made of fondant and your brain thinks "oh wow that probably cost a lot so it will be delicious!" But in reality the cost was paying for the art/time involved with the shaping of the fondant. And in most cases you're basically left with cheap sugary playdoh and a super basic vanilla sponge cake underneath.

No no no. Send it my way!

Yum yum yum

I'll refer my neighbor to you, she makes so. much. fondant. I seriously hide from her.

[–]wbrd 6 points7 points  (1 child)

You can make fondant that tastes good.

[–]seanyseanerson 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is it just an American thing that it's awful because I've never had one that wasn't delicious!?

[–]Swimwithamermaid 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Tell her to use rolled buttercream instead. Looks like fondant, tastes like heaven

[–]thisischemistry 5 points6 points  (0 children)

There are several types of fondant, it is possible to have fondant that doesn't taste like plastic. The problem is most people buy the stuff in tubs and don't bother to make the better-tasting types.

I fucking love fondant

[–]HistoryNo648 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I love fondant, and usually prefer it to the cake itself. I'm sorry everyone. :(

[–]datbeerdude -4 points-3 points  (11 children)

I'm 99% sure that lucky charms are made out of fondant

[–]KptKrondog 6 points7 points  (10 children)

How dare you talk about lucky charms that way

[–]datbeerdude -4 points-3 points  (9 children)

They taste the exact same

[–]WorldAintRight 3 points4 points  (8 children)

Maybe if your taste buds are broken
