My birthday was on Sunday and that called for a really nice cake. I started making it on Saturday and it was going to be this awesome 10" yellow cake with chocolate cream filling. Well, after a series of small disasters, I ended up throwing that cake away and starting over. I guess I have been watching too much Cake Boss or something.
Anyways, the cake I made ended up pretty awesome. I also tried out marshmallow fondant for the first time and it was SO FUN!!! Sticky, but really fun. I will make some sort of tutorial looking post for it later because it is definitely something that should be tried. I just made the David's yellow cake that I love, filled it will raspberry and chocolate (I didn't have enough chocolate to fill the whole thing b/c of that dumb cake that I threw away) and frosted it with a quick crumb coat.
I made the fondant and dyed it all yellow. My yellow turned out a little bright, but it's my favorite color so it was perfect. I put some nice white flowers and green leaves on there with royal icing and a brush, and then I stuck all these nice little pearl sprinkles on.
My friends also gave me a beautiful red cake server and my cake looked pretty nice on it.
