This is a carrot cake with vanilla cream cheese icing covered in
vanilla-flavored fondant for a 1st Birthday party.
Elmo and Cookie Monster were handmade from fondant.
...As was Big Bird, who I tried to texture to give the appearance of feathers...
I textured the fondant on the cake board to look like hardwood and cut strips into it to give the appearance of floor boards. I added "nails" with the end of a small piping tip and "stained" the floor with a mixture of brown food coloring and water. I really like this effect!
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
