And Another Birthday...

I wanted to try a fully covered fondant cake. Luckily, I have a friend that didn't mind if I tried a new cake skill out on her birthday cake!
I wanted it to be modern, girly girl. Zebra stripes and diamonds. Her first initial is K. The cake is classic yellow, covered in buttercream and then in fondant. The only thing not edible are the diamonds.
As you can see, I still have a bit of practice to go but fondant covered cakes are a fun cake option! They are a lot different to work with than a buttercream cake. I will continue to practice :) and I know I'll eventually get the hang of fondant! I made sure to cover my cake in buttercream so that the fondant could be peeled off and the cake would be like any other cake underneath.


  1. It looks great. I love the initial on top with the gems.

  2. this cake looks amazing you got talent!!
