Haha, yeah my butt doesn't need any help from this cake.  Cheesy

Man, those little ribbon coils were a lot more fragile than I thought they would be.  But I enjoyed it so much.  The only part I was annoyed with was making the little balls for the border.  That part was so boring!  I wanted to do a  twisted rope-y sort of border, but I couldn't get it to work right.  I'll figure it out eventually.

Thank you so much for your compliments!
12  COOKING / Dessert / Labor Day Cake on: August 30, 2014 04:28:50 PM
I usually hang out in the knitting forums, but I've been taking cake decorating classes through Wilton so here I am.  Grin

This is my final cake for Course 3.  I did a patriotic theme for Labor Day.  This was my second attempt at covering a cake in fondant, and while it's not perfect, I'm pretty proud of myself for not having any folds.  I don't think you can tell because of the bunting, but I could have smoothed the sides a little more.  My fondant smoother kept picking up traces of the chocolate buttercream from the edge, so I decided to leave it alone before I smeared it everywhere.  In any case, it's so much better than my first attempt!

Inside there are two layers of chocolate Guinness cake with chocolate buttercream frosting.  I almost wish I was going to keep it so I could eat it.  But I'd totally stuff my face, so I've got a friend coming to take it off my hands.

Thanks for looking.  Smiley

Pairing the variegated yarn with a solid color was an absolutely brilliant idea.  The effect is just gorgeous!

Oh, what a neat hat.  I like the colors too.  Also, thanks for sharing the pattern link.  I cant believe I didnt see it on Ravelry before!  I have the perfect buttons to make a bunch of these hats for family.

Awesome!  It's all about the button  Cheesy

*Edited to add:  The first time I knit this hat, it was too short to fold over properly and look the way I wanted it to look.  So I had to rip it out to before the decreases and add an extra stripe there.  Later, I noticed on the pattern's ravelry page, the author mentions other knitters encountering this same problem.  I wish I had noticed that the first time, so just a heads up if you're going to make one.
