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.
