Easy Wedding Cake Monograms

Easy wedding cake monograms - courtesy of Rianne, from The Art of Dessert. She was forced to give up the pursuit of one day becoming a pastry chef because of a difficult pregnancy and the premature birth of her son. Now a stay-at-home mother, she spent almost an entire year learning how to bake without using peanuts, seafood, eggs, wheat, soy or dairy because of her son’s multiple food allergies. In addition to her recipes, she gives an amazing step-by-step tutorial on how to make fondant monograms, so simple that if you know your way around rolled fondant and are handy with a small paintbrush, you’ll be a master in no time.
