|Cinnamon Brown Sugar B-day Cake - Wilton Fondant Course|
I had only played with buttercream and royal icing up to that point, so I was a little anxious. I started by baking two cinnamon, brown sugar cakes, filled them with vanilla, buttercream icing and stacked them to create an 8" high cake. I used ivory, vanilla fondant to cover the entire cake and added ribbon/bow and anemone-inspired flower accents fashioned from gray-ish coloured fondant. Finally, I coloured some buttercream icing to create the dots and quickly learned I am not as patient as I thought. There were a few hiccups along the way, but I am rather pleased with my efforts. It certainly tasted a heck of a lot better than it looks!!
