I came to Idaho just in time for my sister's birthday and decided to strike out on my own. This is my very first solo attempt at fondant- which I made myself. I didn't get the store bought kind!
The little fairy on top was made by my 10 year old niece. She was so excited to give her mom an awesome birthday cake!
As you can see, there is lots of room for improvement (you cant see all the oopsies on the back), but I think for a first attempt that it's not half bad. I can see why fondant cakes are twice the price. This sucker was so time consuming. My sister thought I was kidding when I told her it took six hours- just for the decorating. Of course, I didn't know what I was doing. I'm sure with practice I'll be able to shave time off... and make it look better.
