I usually hang out in the knitting forums, but I've been taking cake decorating classes through Wilton so here I am.
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.
