A friend of mine wanted a cake with balloons and unfortunately I'm not very creative so I came here to try to find an idea. I couldn't believe that there weren't hardly any cakes with balloons that I could find. Anyway, the balloons are done with fondant, the rest with buttercream. For some reason, I couldn't get my buttercream smooth this time. I just didn't have very good luck with this cake. I'm sure we've all had those moments....at least I hope I'm not the only one.
