Playing with Fondant

So my first foray into working with fondant went well. The class was super fast paced as there is a lot of ground to cover. Putting fondant on a square cake is a bit complicated dealing with corners.

I was inspired by Valentine's day. The bow got squished by my cake carrier but you can still get the jest of it. The cake underneath is chocolate with marshmellow filling. The pre bought fondant tastes awful. Our instructor made a marshmellow fondant that she flavoured with chocolate and rum extract. We each got to try a little and that was good. I'll look into that for the final cake.
In other news not much going on, weighing in for the first time in two weeks tomorrow so we'll see how that goes.
Half way through cake decorating class I got a mega coughing fit which lasted until I got home. Had super uneven sleep and was wide awake at 3:30am. Of course about 15min before the alarm went off I was falling asleep again. Though this morning I find I'm coughing less and with not so much umpff.
Only watched half of Survivor last night.
I'm totally pumped to clean my house tonight, the chaos is getting to me.
So I hope everyone has a great long weekend!

wow - your cake is so beautiful! you have a real talent!

I sure hope your cough goes away soon - it can be rough when you're so awake in the middle of the night. It just wears on you. I watched Survivor this morning. I'm really enjoying this season.

Can you believe how nice it was outside today?

Your cake looks very professional. You should be really proud of yourself.
