For all that work.....a medal!
The original "plan" for our Mardi Gras cake....note: it's ROUND and covered with fondant.
The round cake takes shape.
Covered in buttercream to adhere the rolled fondant ...
After three attempts....the cake was successfully covered in fondant!
Decorations made of pastillage awaiting coloring.
Fast forward and we are done! While the cake fell off the plate during the 3 hour transport to Conroe, I think the judges could see the hard work that went into such a tedious design.
