Let me just put it out there. I strongly dislike it--and I'm terrible at working with it. Ava's birthday cake was so disappointing to me, I wouldn't even post a picture of it. First off it was suppose to be chocolate fondant-- that turned into nasty boxed fondant, that turned into-- well I didn't like it and that's all that matters.
So my sweet neighbor's Birthday is today and she asked me if I would make her a cool cake. I said sure (cause she is awesome and I couldn't turn her down)-- just find a picture of something you like and I'll do my best.
What did she pick? What do you think she picked? I smiled through my teeth as she pointed to a picture of a lopsided cake covered in ....yes, fondant.
So, I braved it. This time with homemade fondant, which tasted much better, but was still a pain in the butt. I though the results were a little better this time, but please don't look too close-- I'm very critical of my work.
Ethan sat watching me and talked about his Birthday cake. (coming up in a few weeks) I could see the wheels turning in his head, and I hoped they weren't liking the awful fondant. (How bout that dump truck cake that takes about 1 hour start to finish?!)
But.... I know me, and even if he doesn't ask, I'll do it again, cause I just can't stand when something eludes me in the kitchen. Anyone give fondant lessons?
