Today is Andrew's 20th birthday and we got to celebrate with him by stuffing our faces with oh-so delicious Japanese food... Mhhmmmm
I surprised Drew with a super fun birthday cake made by yours truly.
I used to work with buttercream all the time but it was so messy and time consuming. In retrospect, I probably should have started this blog back then, so I could document all of my artsy cakes and whatnot.
Anyway, my first attempt at fondant was AWESOME!!!!
The recipe could not have been any easier-- melted mini marshmallows mixed with powdered sugar... Eh voila! I am officially a cake boss.
Rolling out the fondant was tricky and sticky. It was tough in my teeny kitchen, so I improvised and rolled it out on a cookie sheet, success!
Dying the fondant blue was also kind of difficult and it required a lot of effort. I was about to give up and just use marbled blue-ish white fondant. But in the end, I prevailed! Hooray!
