Oh my gosh, I would love to see a tutorial or at least a template! I've been looking all over for one on the internet. I just bought my skates and don't want to scuff them all up already.
Yours look great!

Yay, Sweets! I've had my eye on this post for such a very long time... We're trying to clear out our pantry before we move, so I FINALLY made the popcorn balls. I scaled WAY down, as this was just a test, and instead of the water, I used vanilla bean paste, and I added in a few shakes of salt. These were a tad too sweet (even for me!) but still delicious. I've never had popcorn balls before, but apparently I love 'em Smiley I even made them pretty like yours!

BTW, when I was telling my husband about these popcorn balls, I mentioned you as my "craftster mentor" hahaha

Ladymirzri, I'm in south Texas too! i added you for solidarity Smiley My page doesn't have very many yet either, but I'm just getting started and haven't done much yet. There's a share button on your page; all I did was just press that and say something like "Hey guys, 'like' my craft page! Once I get 25 people, I can register a user name. Tell your friends!" One of my friends offered an incentive (a drawing for a free item) to get to her goal number that worked as well. Other than that, I've put the link on my business card so people will go and hopefully add me once I start passing them out. Hopefully that helps!

I made one too!

That fabric was originally intended for a car seatcover (among other car related projects) but I never got around to it. Figured I could make something relatively quick and small. The thing that took the longest was the stupid quilting. I like the end result though; thanks for the inspiration!

Darn you, Sweets! You've got me planning my baby's first birthday party before I even have a baby! Smiley Looks great

Yep it's super easy too make. Basically melt marshmallows with a bit of water and mix in powdered sugar. I figured out the lazy man's way though- use a stand mixer with a dough hook to knead it. Waaaaay easier! Smiley

thanks, all!
glasstapper - the actual cake by itself seemed to need more sugar, but once it was covered with ganache and fondant, it was fine. the fondant covering the cake tasted fairly good, but the decorations (which were made from the same batch of fondant) were gross. the only thing i can figure out is i used a bit more cornstarch to keep it from sticking to stuff when rolling it out. *shrugs*
megstar - the whole thing is fondant. my icing skills leave a LOT to be desired hah
kerri - i was thinking about the icing trick to stick them together, but i didn't have any left :/ and wouldn't sticking a dowel through both layers ruin the top tier? the way i'm imagining it, that would only work if you have some kind of removable decoration on the top. or maybe make a hole through the cardboard before placing the cake so you can just poke it through the bottom so it doesn't mess up the top. since most of the cakes i make never leave the house that's too much work for me. i'm super lazy! next time i make a layered one that'll be going somewhere, i may try that trick. thanks!

I'm so excited! I made my first tiered cake tonight, and it seems fairly successful! I'm still unsure of exactly how to make it super secure (I put dowel rods in, but it's just sitting on top) but as it's not moving anywhere other than MY MOUTH hehe I'm not too worried.
I used a Martha Stewart yellow cake recipe, and chocolate ganache whipped into fluffy icing. I also tried to marble the fondant on the top tier but it's really subtle.
