Don't let the cake bosses and bakers extraordinaire fool you. Smooth, pliable, decorative fondant is easy to use, particularly one straight from the box. Follow our directions, applying a little edible glitter and pearl sparkling dust, such as Wilton Shimmer Dust. Don't forget the pearls!
Add Vanilla Buttercream Frosting to a pastry bag fitted with a 1/4-inch round tip. Pipe 1 column of dots on side of cake from top to bottom so that dots touch each other. Gently smear each dot using an offset spatula, 1 at a time. Repeat to cover sides completely; garnish top, if desired.
Cut thinly rolled fondant with a 1 3/4-inch holly leaf cutter. Draw veins on leaves with a small knife. Crumble 2 sheets of aluminum foil into ropes; arrange on a baking sheet. Drape leaves over foil to curl. Let dry at room temperature 12 hours. Arrange leaves and fresh cranberries on cake, pressing gently to adhere.
