The use of fondant for cake decorating is an art that is actually hundreds of years old. Also known in Europe as ‘sugar paste’, this sweet variation of marzipan icing was often used in decorating wedding cakes during the Renaissance due to its unique texture and flexibility to be rolled, stamped and cut. And as we all know now, fondant has more possibilities than any 16th century baker every dreamed. One of those possibilities has become one of the most elegant and versatile of designs ever to grace a cake of any type – and most especially an elaborate wedding centerpiece. The Swag.

At once both dramatic and simple, fondant swags can create a mood all of their own. Crafted in shiny silver finish or in sweeping golden tones – one feels the tug of distant Hollywood glamour all bright and tinsel-y. (Can’t you picture Jean Harlow – direct from the silver screen – walking the red carpet in a gown just like these?)

Pearlescent white fondant tiers are gracefully draped with matching swags, all accented with bright blue fines and stunning sugar flowers.

 

Or perhaps a bit of colored contrasting swag is your preference. It is, after all, the perfect way to introduce a new and vibrant perspective to your wedding confection. Of course, color selections and floral styles are exceptionally personal for each new bride-to-be – but swags of fondant offer so many options and versatility, don’t you agree?
