My First Fondant and Wedding Cake
This is my first attempt with fondant. I had wanted to put Royal Icing snowflakes but it was way too humid here and they didn't set up in time. My two helpers, my son Isaac on the left and his friend Dusty, made the Christmas scene instead. The igloo is made of white chocolate fantasy fudge. It was for a Christmas party given by Erica and Ryan (the bride and groom below). It seems they're always the victims of my endeavors. Two days later, the snowflakes were ready.
This is my first attempt at a Wedding Cake. The bride is like a daughter. I had been wanting to attempt a wedding cake for some time, and she chose one that was not too elaborate as far as actual decoration went. When I see the picture, I can see all the mistakes I made. Compared to some other peoples' sites, I am a little embarrassed to post mine. I figure this will give me a chance to see how the cakes improve as time goes on.
