Youngest tries to be like the eldest...

After seeing all of Em's pretty fondant cakes, I thought I would give it a shot for Jacob's birthday cake. Then I remembered that I am really awful at cake-decorating and don't have any of the proper tools. I made Jacob's little sister come help me, because I was stressed out about finishing it in time. Here's what we ended up with:


We were supposed to put orange flames over the purple ones, but we were over it by then.
I realize that it looks pretty crappy, but I'm sorta proud of myself since we had no idea what we were doing. I don't know if this is something I'll be sticking with, because it made a huge mess and took a lot of work, but it was fun to try.

doesn't look crappy at ALL! It's awesome! Precisely how long does it take though? I'm wondering if I would have the patience!

It looks fab, but what did it TASTE like? Fondant makes me nervous.
