As promised, here is Little T's birthday cake (and cupcakes!) I had a TON of fun working with the fondant. I was not brave enough to attempt covering the whole cake in fondant, but the buttercream turned out PERFECTLY, so I am quite happy! It was the perfect consistency, and the flavor was great too! (If I do say so myself!)
The fondant was premade. I added color to white fondant for the yellow and green, but the red was already premixed. I will DEFINITELY try it again! The only problem now, is that I made about twice as much buttercream as I needed. . .and I've been dipping my finger into it ever since this weekend. I think its going to have to go down the drain tonight. Otherwise it will be on my thighs for years to come!
