I, of course, made her cake. Still playing around with fondant. I liked the way it turned out, but -- and I can hear you already telling me I'm crazy -- I was not completely happy with it. My fondant ripped after I had it on the cake and I couldn't take it off without losing the most of the icing that went under neath it as well as the fondant itself. So I had to piece it together.
Abby was thrilled with it and everyone else thought it was lovely. But I can't wait to make another one to get some more time with the fondant. I think it needs more icing sugar. When I watch them using fondant on Cake Boss or Ace of Cakes there's does not seem to be in constant danger of ripping like mine was. Yep, there is more playing to be done.
Mike is just wishing I'd switch back to buttercream -- he is not a huge fondant fan. So I'll have to throw a little buttercream his way on my next few cakes to keep the grumbling to a minimum.
