I made a fondant cake. That’s a statement I thought I’d never say! For Ella’s birthday I really wanted to make a cake that she would love. She was only turning two, so it doesn’t take much for her to love a cake. haha. But you mom’s know how it is. You’re preparing for this birthday party and you’re thinking about the pictures people will be looking at both next week on Instagram and 20 years from now. You want it to be good! Well this seriously stretched me because I am not a baker.
I love to bake. Actually baking is one of my top 10 things I love to do. Literally, I have a list. I just never can prioritize that because there are other things I love more. Anyways, fondant was as foreign a substance to me as moon rocks until my dear friend Stacy helped me get acquainted with it. Now I can make fondant anything. I could make a fondant table lamp if I wanted to. Not really, it would melt.
So here are some pics from my preparation for Ella’s big day, and my big day of co-baking fondant success!
And the result: A happy child, a full house, and a special memory. A fun time was had by all!
