The finished product! I still have a long way to go!
So, we gave the cake thing a try. We didn't start until 4 in the afternoon though. It didn't turn out how I wanted, but it will take practice. After baking the cake in my ancient stone age oven, we let the cakes cool and headed down the street to cake supply store to buy some raspberry filling to put in between the layers. It was yum-O! Now to the icing story, lol. So, I was supposed to use confectioners sugar. Well I thought that was plain ol' sugar. Ben and I were wondering why it was so crunchy from the sugar, lol. Oopsie! We had fun making the cake. When it was time to put the fondant on, I was so tired that I just slabbed it on without taking much time to smooth it out. The pictures show that. Next time I will make the icing with the correct ingredients, so it will smooth over the cake nice and pretty. Also, if I'm doing fondant, I will take the time to make it nice, smooth, and colorful! It was a fun day!
