My Sister in Law has some friends who are moving to Colorado and she wanted a little cake made for them as a little goodbye. My mind started thinking Colorado--mile high city, trees, snow, sun, skiing, Columbine State Flower--(yeah making that out of fondant definitely wasn't going to happen). I decided to go with a blue background to represent the blue skies, a little snow hill, and some snow capped trees with snow falling in between. I also wanted to try out my new alphabet fondant cutters--they were the biggest pain in the world to get out of the cutters--but I am glad to have those now for future cakes. My little cake supply collection is really starting to grow. The more stuff I get the faster and more convenient this cake decorating stuff goes! This time I started working on things the day before--had all the fondant colored and cut out the day before! Definitely a smart idea!
