Road Trip with Husband

Paul and I went on a fun road trip to explore our neck of the woods. We went to Mt Rushmore, the Crazy Horse Memorial, Mt. Harney (highest point in South Dakota), Devil's Tower, and Martin's Cove. We were kind of celebrating our first 6 months of marriage as well.

Happy 6 months my handsome hunk.

First Fondant

My good friend Vonna taught me how to work with fondant. Here is our fun time and our final product:

Thanks Vonna! That was super fun. The main things I learned: 1. Buttercream icing tastes way better than fondant (I guess I already knew that), 2. You use a rolling pin to transport the rolled icing to the cake, 3. You can cover up the bottom if it's ugly with a fondant or fabric ribbon:), and 4. If you get the fondant wet after it's on the cake, that part of the icing will have a wet shine to it even when dry.
