I had this cake I was making and I was really excited about the idea. Mostly because I didn't borrow the idea, and that doesn't happen very often. I also wanted to play around taking pictures with my new lens. So here is a little picture story of my latest cake :)
Just a devil's food cake with buttercream frosting
I had to show you some of the mess
I didn't take pictures of the mess from making the fondant. But here are all the fondant pieces
I used a cool little tool to make the stripes on the sides
With a Happy Birthday on the front
The gift and the hat are cake.
And here is the finished product. It's far from flawless, but I like it. I figure the more I work with fondant the better I'll get :)
He's FOUR now!
