I finally decided to put all my cakes in one place so I created this blog--mostly for me to record my fondant cake decorating journey.

Baby Shower Cake

Here's my latest cake--done for a baby shower.  A friend of mine, due in less than a week, is going to be surprised with the gender so we went with a brown zebra to match her crib bedding! 

This was my first attempt at doing the zebra stripes.  Wasn't too hard, but the brown fondant was not easy to work with and dried out incredibly fast.  This was my first time buying pre-colored fondant, so I am wondering if that was why.   

This one took ALL day, but like the rest of them, I learned a lot and had a great time with it!
