Now that I've tackled stacking cakes, I need to practice like crazy with fondant. Luckily my uncle's 60 birthday was this year!
I originally though I'd just try my hand at making fondant (tried it once before here) because I didn't have much time (ie to order the good stuff online) and I figured why not..
I don't know what went wrong this time, but no matter how much I kneaded it it would NOT come together! I ended up throwing it out and going to Michael's and buying a box of the Wilton stuff. I've heard a few bad reviews about it, but I was kinda in a pinch. lol
All in all it didn't turn out too bad!
Luckily the stripes help hide the rips on the top layer...
For the bottom I took some cookie cutters to make shapes and "glued" them on with some icing.
My family was pretty impressed, and I figured it wasn't too bad. Need a LOT more practice before the wedding though!
