Simple fondant cake decorating techniques include making curliques, chalking flowers and applying extra fondant. Other fondant cake decorating techniques include braiding fondant and draping it.
To make fondant curliques, roll out 1/16 inch of cornstarch-dusted fondant, and cut it into strips. Wrap the strips around a dowel rod or craft candy rod to make curls. Wait five to 10 minutes, and slide the curl off the dowel rod to dry fully. Attach the curliques to treats using a damp brush.
Applying fondant decorations to surfaces already covered in fondant is a simple technique that involves brushing water onto the back of a fondant decoration, pressing the decoration firmly onto the fondant-covered surface, and holding it there until it sits firmly in place.
