January 2009: After watching many episodes of Ace of Cakes, I decided to go for it! I had made several buttercream cakes before, but this was my first go with fondant. I have to say, I was pretty happy with the way it turned out. I bought pre-made Wilton fondant and it did look pretty, but it didn’t taste like anything. That was my first and last time using pre-made fondant! This cake was for fun and I shared it with my friends at church for a pot-luck. Two thumbs up for design… mixed reviews for fondant and the vanilla cake recipe I tried was a bit dry. Good feedback for a beginner.
