My First Fondant Cake

Today my daughter is celebrating her birthday,i was somewat busy in making an elaborate south Indian lunch today. To celebrate this day i prepared my first ever fondant cake yesterday with a checkerboard cake inside.To be honest, i never went to baking class or cake decorating class till today, but somehow i wanted to make a different cake specially for my daughter for her birthday with fondant. Thanks to Youtube, i watched how to make fondant since few days with various links before start making fondant with marshmallows. I choosed rose coloured marshmallows for making this fondant, i dont have any particular cutters and utensils. I simply used my star shaped cookies cutter and used scissor to cut down the fondant as leaves.

Actually i was bit nervous, eventhough for me this fondant cake turned good. I posted this picture in Facebook to get an idea about my friend's view, omg their responses was tremendous. I got loads of encouraging,lovely and motivating words. Thank god,am blessed with wonderful friends around. We are going to cut the cake today evening and i'll update the checkerboard cake under the fondant soon. Stay tuned friends.


I prepared a simple vanilla and chocolate yogurt cake for preparing this checkerboard cake, thanks again to Youtube. You can get an idea about this cake if you check out youtube.

I'll post soon a detail post for this cake, sorry friends have to prepare for today's evening birthday party.

Lovely cake. Your daughter must have loved it. Just a couple of days ago I made a fondant cake for my elder daughter's Kindergarten "graduation" party....will be posting it soon. However, I used readymade rolled fondant.
