It is making me laugh. I'm glad I started practicing. Guess I'll be doing a LOT more practice.
My little cake is crooked and lumpy and bumpy! Frosting is so much more forgiving. I figure getting the next cake more square won't be too hard for me. This cake was frozen, but it thawed out as I was working with it. I should have cut a bit off the top to level it out. But I will practice the fondant more. It stretched out as I was picking it up, so I've got to watch a couple more you tube videos and study the technique. Fun, though. Next time I'll try do it after the kids go to bed or maybe when Habtamu is home to run interference. Too many interruptions :) Very fun to be trying something new. My bread is ugly today, too. (it is yummy tho!) Might just be Ugly Friday. Who knows?!
I let the kids play with the left over fondant. It's just like play dough, but sweet!
