I have been obsessed with shows like "Ace of Cakes" and "Cake Boss". I have always wanted to try to decorate a cake with fondant and see what I can do. My friend Ann started decorating cakes a little while ago and she is really good at it. So, she kindly came over and gave me a lesson in making fondant and other basics. Wasn't that nice of her?
This is my first attempt with fondant. I had absolutely no cake tools, so it is rudimentary stuff I used. But I think it turned out pretty cute. It is a chocolate cake with a dark chocolate raspberry filling. This is a pretty big cake. I am going to have to share with a lot of people.
Come on over and have some cake with us. It won't look like this for long.
