Who doesn't love the look of a pristine cake covered in fondant?
And for those little touches, why not use Air Heads?
They taste much better than fondant and are about the same consistency. They're a little bit tougher to cut out with a cookie cutter because of their thicker consistency, but if you just nuke it in the microwave a few seconds, it softens it up.
This would not be ideal to cover a whole cake, but for little extras this would work great!
