Seeing as yesterday was my sister's birthday I can finally post a photo of her birthday cake. I've been dying to put something up but seeing as she reads my blog there's a slight problem with doing that.
I made a fondant plaque with a royal icing runout picture of Betty Boop and to be fair I don't think it looks that bad to say it was my first one ever!
I then made a marble cake, slapped a hell of a lot of buttercream on it and between the 2 layers then made some marshmallow fondant to go over the top. Ah, how I had forgotten how much fun it is to roll that stuff out! I just got it right and a tear appeared on the top at the front so I did a crap patch up job and thought 'tat will do'. I also put a ribbon around the edge, only when I bought it, I didn't realise it was going to be so wide!
Also, the marshmallow fondant shank slightly, so the cake seemed to dome quite alot and Betty Boop wouldn't sit flat on top but it's all trial ad error.
Happy Birthday Moo!
