My First Fondant Cake

So this is my newest cake with fondant (which tastes gross unless you make it from scratch with marshmallows). This one wasn't that tough to do - except for the quilting effect cuz I had NO CLUE how to do it. The ribbon and the blue was pretty easy except some cracking at the corners. =/

But yah, it took me the longest time, debating whether or not to do the quilting effect cuz I didn't want to ruin how smooth it was . But in the end I did it and I'm glad I did. haha :) It turned out alright - And it was pretty fun. :) Totally just took a lil square piece of paper and put diamonds every where right before I went to work. ahahah :) I'm crazy.

Anyways, not much to this cake. Yup. Next up, the finale - the wedding cake. :)

Cake 4 - Flowery

So this is my fourth cake with a basket weave around the sides! I think it turned out alright. Made all the flowers before hand - royal icing. These were kind of all my bad stuff though - I picked out all the warped flowers and warped ladybugs and stuff since this was my practice cake. hehe :)

but yah - you can see pansies, roses, rosebuds, violets, apple blossoms, daisies, daffodills, rosettes and mums! Kind of a springy look =P Oh well. ;) Maybe it'll be good for Easter next year! My friend in class made this super awesome fall one with fall colors - wine, oranges and purpley roses with gold luster dust and made some awesome fall leaves with a really cool monogram. Sooo neat - i'll have to try it! :) Anyways - that's all for now!

Next is fondant class so like wedding cake style cakes! Wooohoo!! :)
