This cake is going to be for my Grandparent’s 60th anniversary party, and its obviously not fully decorated yet (we’re just going to do some ribbon around it, and maybe some flowers on top). But look how much better I’m getting with the fondant already! Bit improvement over trial #1
Family members are already requesting birthday cakes, so it looks like i’ll get some more practice!

Thanks guys! This is one of those DIY projects I kinda got thrown into – my mom just started telling ppl I was planning on making my own cake lol?? I had expressed that having a perfect cake wasn’t high on my priority list, and somehow this resutled! Anyways, its been fun so far making it (I enjoy baking) and if it ends up being too much, I’m still a year out and I could always change my mind and order cake 🙂
I’ll definitely post a shot of it once it has its decorations!
Do you guys like the pink? For the wedding, it will likely have a dark pink ribbon on it, and I’m almost starting to wonder if it wouldn’t be better just having white fondant for a wedding? It just seems so PINK lol!

I think white with pink accents would be beautiful!
Pink on pink would be pretty pink 🙂 but if that’s your color palette, that’s what you’re going for, right?
Actually, a lighter shade (is it bad that this one reminds me of pepto? I probably shouldn’t even say that — I don’t mean it in a bad way!!!! Just … I was never good at crayola crayon names for colors so I name them all by what I see regularly in those colors, haha, not that I regularly ingest pepto… um. off track. sorry. what was I saying?) – RIGHT a lighter shade of pink (think really pale pink, like cupcake liners) + the darker pink ribbon might pop just as much as white, and still accomplish the pink on pink look, if that’s what you want. 🙂

LOL, I’m definitely not offended by “pepto” – it ended up REALLY pink. Unfortunately, you should have seen Trial #1, it was SUPER SUPER pink, but luckily it was an easter cake so it worked hehe. The fondant on that cake actually ended up FADING, so its possible that this one will end up being a pale pink? Otherwise, I’m going to have to keep practicing to try and determine how much food colouring to add! I agree that this is TOO pink for a wedding cake, especially with pink accents.
