Ooooh, how purdy! So far, I've always shied away from working with fondant, but one of my friend's birthday is coming up and I think you just inspired me to maybe give it a try...

Awesome cake, I love the details with the ripples and creeping plant! It looks too good though, I wouldn't want to eat it!

Haha, I'm too tired today, and I read your description as it being a cake for your *granddaughter*.  Then I went to your previous posts to try and find more AMAZING cakes like this one, and I was like "ummm this person must be the youngest grandma of all time".  I'd better get more sleep tonight.  Anyways, this is really incredible!  I always dream of being able to make stuff like this, and I'm so impressed with how detailed it all is.  Are you self-taught or did you take some kind of decorating class?

Thankyou so much for all your comments, they are really encouraging.
Well I'm 17, so with collage and stuff I don't have time to take a class in decorating - I bet they would be fun though, I just sort of made it up from my head. The only "training" I've had is helping my mum the odd time, she always made us great birthday cakes just for fun.
It is all made with readyroll fondant iceing, I bought a block of white and then just added different amounts of food colouring for different shades. For the grey I just used a small amount of "liquorice" coloured food colouring. Its a great cake to make because the only part you need to smooth flat is the water - no difficult corners. One thing that I found in a book though is to use just plain flour instead of icing sugar when you are handling/rolling out the icing - its way less sticky, and it just brushes off afterwards.
