Fourth of July Fondant Cake
My fondant cake was a success! The homemade fondant was definitely dryer than the store bought, and it actually has a lot of pock marks from air bubbles I'm assuming (the picture hides it well). So, it is not as smooth as the store bought. But, keep in mind I added a TON of extra powdered sugar. I ended up painting the stars first and then putting them on after they were mostly dry. I also colored some fondant red and blue with hopes of making a bow on top and then stars all around it. Unfortunately, the bow was extra floppy and flat, and the colors weren't as vibrant as the painted fondant, so I took the bow off. I have enough fondant left over to cover another 8 inch cake, so I will probably make another practice cake in a few days. Come back to see it!
Here is a picture of me modeling my cake. I love the new shirt I have on from Kohl's!
