Another cake from MsKatie and myself, and our BIGGEST yet.


It is a 3 tier funfetti and chocolate cake for our cousin's baby shower (which was a great success).
She doesn't want to know if it is a boy or girl, so we stuck to something all kids love....Dr.Seuss!
Each layer was to celebrate her favorite books as a kid,
Green Eggs and Ham, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, The Cat in the Hat, and Horton hears a Who




below are some progress shots



Enjoy! Cheesy

LOVE THIS!!! It is just wonderful.  I only wish I could be so creative.

How do you keep your fondant fresh as you create the pieces? Mine always looks dried out.

If I need to go back and fix/adjust a piece and the outside has started to "crust", I do a folding technique.
I'll draw up a quick diagram Smiley

I also keep my colors in large wrapped spheres and break away pieces as needed.

Hope it helps Cheesy

This right here is what I want to learn how to do.  It's gorgeous, and looks like a lot of work went into it.
