I bought these items for fondant yesterday. My sons first birthday is still a long time from now but I don't have a lot of experience in baking. I think that if a start practicing now, I can make a 3D Noah's art cake for his birthday. I can tell you that it's a lot more cost effective to purchase these items at Walmart than Michaels. I plan on making my own marshmallow fondant so, all I need is sugar. I want to make it without crisco; let's hope it works !
