I finished my fondant and gum paste class at Michael’s last night. I’m pretty pleased how my cake turned out. It is white with yellow black-eyed Susan’s on it. I’m really glad I decided to add the leaves because I think they give it a lot of movement plus a more whimsical feel. I really like the “eyelet” ruffle I did on it to. It makes seem kind of vintage or something. My teacher seemed pretty pleased with it and took tons of photos…maybe to do something similar? Anyway, I’ve always been so terrified of fondant before taking this class. I’m glad that I no longer am nervous of it. In fact I just wish I had more time to do cakes! It’s not perfect, but I’m pretty pleased!

Side view. Those eyelets can use a little more work but they are slightly tedious…especially trying to do them before the fondant dries out.
