My Very First Fondant Cake

This weekend was my little sisters high school graduation and open house. My Mom asked me what I'd like to make for it so I automatically said cake. Hey, it looks super easy on youtube!!

IT'S NOT!

I had never messed with fondant before and I don't really like the taste of regular so I made marshmallow. I went through about 5 bad batches before I got a few good ones!

I have also never piped anything on a cake. But, I don't think I did too bad for my first time.

Her party theme was tye-dye so I made the inside of the cake all different colors. I made whipped butter cream frosting for the first time. But, I found it on Pioneer Woman's blog. We all know she can't go wrong. You can get the recipe here. It is super tasty, super easy, and super cheap!

                                               I definitely need to work on my piping...
                                             



And I  need to learn how to clean up while I work


My husband almost fainted when he saw this...


But I didn't think it was too shabby! 


It tasted pretty decent too. I would just like to say though, just because they make it look easy on Cake Boss, doesn't mean it is!! And it is highly stressful and time consuming. Make a practice on first!!!
