I finally tackled a fondant, stacked cake bees. I used to be a decorator at grocery store bakeries but have never done anything more than that. It was really scary but turned ou decent. I spent a lot of time on youtube looking at different videos.
sorry the picture is so big, i dont know how to make them smaller. I also made the calla lillies on the top of the cake.
Edit note: its just for a family party. they’re my guinea pigs

Definitely better than anything I could have attempted! Nice job.

very pretty! Good job! my first fondant cake turned out NOTHING like that…It wasn’t horrible, but you know how it is when things don’t look the way you imagined them

Amazing!! I am trying to get into cake making, and I tried with fondant and failed the first time. Well, not really failed, but it didn’t look near as clean and nice as your cake. I’m sticking with all boxed stuff right now until I get a hang of stacking cakes that way adn then I will move on to fondant.
Very beautiful cake 🙂

@wisher558: great job. i love the quilted one. i actually made my previous wedding cake with fondant. once you get the hang of it, it’s pretty easy to work with.

are there any tools you feel are a must to own?
its taken me years to even attempt this. You’ll get there!
I have a cake for next weekend as well. Its for a puppy party so we’ll see how that one goes. (Pupcakes for the dog and a set of carved cakes for the guests.)l

i didn’t have any special tools for the job. a good rolling pin and a smooth flat surface. i don’t do it as a job, i just did mine b/c i could.

I make cakes – and I’ve found that a marble slab and a marble/granite rolling pin are great for keeping the fondant cool and smooth. Great job for your first try btw. It’s really good!

That is great! Maybe that will inspire me to finally get the nerve to do one.

I love it! The only mis-step worth noting is the piping of the 25. You probably piped it after you had already added the circle to the cake. It would have been neater f you had piped it onto the circle in royal icing (so it would dry and stiffen) and then added the circle to the cake. I’m just being a stickler though. It really looks amazing! I am very impressed.
