Your cakes look amazing!! I love the ugly sweater cake lol! I love that show too, so much so that I decided to try making my own fondant and decorating a cake. I did this one in October–my first ever–for our daughter’s 9th birthday:

and then this one last month for our son’s 12th birthday:

and I’m making another one tonight for our other son’s birthday party tomorrow. Fondant is tricky but fun and if you make it yourself (marshmallows and powdered sugar) it’s edible too 🙂 sorry the pics are so huge!

@hogoboom2012:  All you need for the fondant is mini marshmallows and powdered sugar. Put 4 cups of marshmallows in a microwave safe bowl and add 2 tablespoons of water and microwave for 1-2 minutes until the marshmallows are completely melted, you’ll be able to stir it easily and it’ll be smooth. I usually add the color in at that point (it’s a lot harder to work the color through after you’ve added the sugar). I use Wilton gel colors so it doesn’t thin out the fondant. Then add 2 cups of sugar and start kneading, you’ll add more sugar as your knead and you’ll be able to tell it’s ready when it’s like a soft dough that’s no longer sticky. Usually takes almost 4 cups of powdered sugar 🙂 I’ve never used the store bought kind because everyone says it tastes nasty and this recipe rocks–I’ll find myself nibbling on a piece of it here and there lol. I’ll post a picture tomorrow of the cake I put together tonight! 🙂

@hogoboom2012:  I forgot to add that you can get a set of 101 cookie cutters from Walmart, I believe made by Wilton for $10! That’s how the letters/numbers etc come out so perfect. It includes EVERYTHING: holidays, sports, animals, letters, numbers etc. I’ll never have to buy another cookie cutter again! LOL
