Sooo, after doubting a long time I decided to post it! Yesterday I made my first fondant cake for my 16th birthday! I was really happy how it turned out, although the fondant broke in some places and I had to do it all again..T^T
It's made of pound cake with dairy butter, buttercream filling with strawberry flavour which I majorly screwed up by using salted butter in stead of unsalted and it nearly made me cry, they mentioned the salt on the tiniest square of packing they could find I guess...
When I got the fondant on, I put on some handpainted fimo roses on top that I made earlier, and some ribbon to decorate.
I hope you like! Any tips or comments are very welcome!







thank you for reading!

I always use salted butter in my baking - here in the UK salted butter is the standard - personally I believe salt adds to the flavour but I guess it is whatever you are used to. I bet your cake tasted great!
