pc/bglff: pepto colored/bubblegumlooking First Fondant!
Yesterday I was looking at cakes on flikr and there are some super duper talented folks out there. I decided to try a fondant. Suvi has requested a pink cow cake for her birthday in March. She'll be three, and she certainly knows her mind! She and Theo and I were hanging out here in front of the computer looking for ideas and inspiration. I've never been much of a sculptor, so I'm going to practice a few times before the "big day." It is really easy to make. This is the recipe I used for our first go. It calls for clear vanilla extract, which I have never even heard of. I used my regular brown fake vanilla. I'll post my cake results, good or not so much tomorrow.
suvi has a white board with dry erase markers. this is NOT her board, as you may have noticed. ;)
