Fiddling with fondant
As many of you know, I like to mess with fondant. I especially like making children's cakes, because they aren't as picky as the adults and they always love them, no matter if I mess up or not.
Elery asked me to make a cake for his granddaughter's 7th birthday and I happily complied. It's supposed to be a pillow holding the royal crown of the Princess:
Yeah, OK, it kind of is. I was told that the birthday girl's favorite cake was "just plain yellow", so I made a dense and rich butter cake with some almond glaze under the layer of fondant.
She loved it, so it's all good and Ashley wants me to make the same cake for Madison's 1st birthday in December, so I got a chance to practice.
