A birthday cake for my inlaws.It was both of Chases parents birthdays this week, and since they have been enjoying the sun in Mexico we haven't been able to celebrate yet. I headed over to my mom and dads on Monday to bake the cake and get it in the freezer, as well as make fondant. I'd found a new recipe on my sister Brenas sister in law Lara's blog, for this yummy looking marshmallow fondant. Moms been making cake for longer than I've been around, and always used the regular fondant, which I think tastes like play dough, yuck!!! So we decided to try the marshmallow fondant out, and since I needed a birthday cake it was the perfect time to try it out. Mom came over today to help me decorate the cake, it was way too easy, usually we have to fight with the fondant. Not today it just fell perfectly on the cake, didn't crack and took a total of maybe 2 minutes to make look perfect. Even better this fondant tastes delicious (I want to actually eat it off my piece of cake and not throw it in the trash), and is quite inexpensive. Mom and I are both converted, she will be using this stuff on every cake she does from now on.
I think it turned out pretty cute, What do you all think? Hope Guy and Vicki like it, If not I'll be in sugar heaven for a few days.
