i made a cake for the first birthday party of the year for our family. we had a farm birthday party for blondie. she loves animals, amongst other things.
this is where my perfectionist gets too much. i liked the cake, but i see my flaws in it. i did use homemade fondant. i need to get over my cheapness and try out the Satin Ice Rolled Fondant - White - Vanilla - 2 lb one day and i'm sure i'll be amazed. the fondant was great for the white. and then for the black too. the pink turned out great as wrinkled pig skin. alas... i'll stop my critiquing.
