Making a cake

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 :)
