Help on first cake

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I am going to start practicing on a cake for my daughters 5th birthday in June. I want to make a whimsical cake with gumpaste or fondant flowers and butterflies. All bright colors! In doing my research, I think I will use the Super Enhanced Cake Formula recipe, and the Faux Fondant- Crusting Buttercream. Are these good choices? I like the look of the fondant cakes, but since the taste isn't so great ( and it is for 5 year olds!) I would do the Faux Fondant. Any other ideas or sugestions would be appreciated! Thanks, Jonna

Never made that type of cake but try the marshmallow fondant recipe! It's yummy and the kids will love it!!!

P.S. Can't wait to see the cake. Post your practice one.

I've never heard of that recipe either, but I second the vote for marshmallo fondant! It's so much better than the wilton kind! Good luck with your cake thumbs_up.gif

Hi. I believe that the MMF will do the trick. All kids love marshmallows!!! And with a cake done in it by mom, you will so rock!! I hope that you make what you want. I am sure that they will love it.
Hoping to one day have a shop of my own!

The faux fondant is here http://cakecentral.com/article10-How-To-Create-Faux-Fondant.html

I love whimsical cakes! It's almost something you can't mess-up because every little detail doesn't have to be perfect. It will look so pretty too with the butterflies, flowers and bright colors. I think ribbon roses are a really whimsical flower too if you wanted to try those.
