Ok, being the CRAZY craftster I am, I have decided to make both my and my cousin's birthday cake (she's turning 3 on the 24th of December, and I turn 21 on the 25th of December
), AND my boyfriend's cake (he turns 26 on the 19th of Jan
). Now I want to do two theme cakes. Blue's Clues for me and my cousin (I LOVE Blue's Clues!), and Kenny from South Park for my boyfriend (its one of his favorite shows...I can barely stand it).
Now my question is, how can I actually make the characters out of fondant? I am a horrible artist, but I had an idea to print off reference pictures from the net and superimpose them onto cardboard to make a stencil. Has anybody ever done this before? And if you have, how did it go? I'm REALLY scared. And I also want to make another cake for my birthday party with my friends. A cupcake one.
This will be my first time working with fondant, so any tips would be appreciated!
