So, Saturday morning James and I had a blast learning a new cake-decorating skill: working with fondant. James made the cake and the fondant on Friday (the fondant was made out of marshmallows and a ton of powdered sugar and I don't even know what else), and then Saturday morning we set to decorating it. First, James expertly covered the entire cake with a layer of white fondant:
Next, we had to decide what we wanted to decorate it with, so we went to our huge box of 100 cookie cutters to choose a shape or two.
Once our magnificent shapes were selected, we began coloring and cutting the fondant and decorating the cake.
Ok, I have probably not had this much fun in a long time. James is hilarious. I love my husband -he's awesome. (It was, after all, all his idea to make this cake in the first place.)We spent a lot of time congratulating ourselves on our brilliance and laughing at our randomness.
The final product:
Yes, those are stegosauruses. They represent our neighbors, to whom we gave this masterpiece as a magnanimous show of our appreciation and admiration of them. (Applause here would be appropriate.)
