Hello! Long time reader, first time posting pics.

Here is the cake I made for my coworker's going away party. It's our company logo, plus his name happens to be Dean, so it worked out very well. It was my first time with fondant, and I almost gave up because it was so intimidating, but I'm glad I didn't.

This:




plus this



turned into this



Whew! I'm glad I got my "first time" over with!

Fondant is so hard to work with sometimes!  You did a great job!! 
(I prefer working with Marshamallow fondant myself, I think its an easier medium than the real stuff, and tastes better!!)

I think that looks amazing!  I want to try fondant so badly.  This has inspired me to take the plunge...now I just need a reason to make a nice cake!

Thanks, everyone!

To those who haven't tried fondant yet, I say go for it - I was so nervous about it (although I don't know why, it's just a cake, for pete's sake...) and when I was done, it was a huge relief.

I'm going to make the marshmallow fondant sometime this week - I'm excited!

I haven't tried fondant yet, not only because it is intimidating but I've heard it tastes terrible, was this true for you?

I didn't taste it (I'm pregnant and I've totally lost my taste for sweets!) but I've heard from a LOT of people that the Wilton fondant (which I used) does taste bad and marshmallow fondant (which I hope to try soon!) tastes good, like circus peanuts.
