Well with the craziness of our lives and us going on a vacation soon, we decide to do the cake on October 16th and I helped him because I'm nice.
My husband mixing cake mix.
Mixing the fondant. We used chocolate marshmallows.....I was hoping that it would give it more a chocolatey flavor, but nope. I'd stick with white in the future unless you want a purply gray fondant.
I then dirty iced it while my husband rolled out the fondant.
Then we placed the fondant on top. As you can see, it was very thick....wish we had one of those fondant rollers like on Cake Boss!
Since the fondant was a grey purply color, I made it Halloween themed! With our leftover fondant, I cut out Halloween shapes with cookie cutters and then painted it with food coloring and added some candy corn pieces to it. It's definitely not the greatest, but we would love to try again....maybe for our son's birthday on November 30th.....maybe.
It tasted pretty good....the fondant though was just as gross though - I think eating fondant is yucky (pure powdered sugar!)
Have you been successful with fondant on your first attempts?
