                          I dislike the taste of fondant so much, I would rather have an unpolished looking cake (yes, even at a wedding or anniversary or big birthday) than a cute cake w fondant

                                                          Thanks Claire! Now I learned something new about keeping the filling in between the layers that was kind of a "DUH!" moment for me. Beautiful cakes and I would love to have the carrot cake recipe.

                                                                        I feel like fondant is mostly for showing off. If the cake is gonna be on display for an event or a party , then sure, go ahead and use fondant to make an impressive looking cake with all the colours and shapes. (Also, I'm pretty sure fondant helps to lock he moisture in the cake so if it's gonna be on display for a long time, it is a good choice for the cake.) But let's admit it, fondant doesn't taste that good and most people prefer to eat cream icing than fondant on top of their cake. So if you're making the cake for simple home party or get together, I don't think your cake needs fondant. So yeah, I agree with Claire, forget about it.

I don’t know how much kosher salt of butter is needed and it is really upsetting not being able to make a cake when the point of this was to teach us
