Easter Birthday Cake

Just 1 year ago this month, I began my crazy and addictive cake decorating adventure. Prior to April 2009, I had made a total of 8 cakes (1 for my brother the rest for my kids) over a span of 4 years…just an average of 2 cakes per year. Over the past 12 months, I have been very busy and made 17 cakes….Wow! I have learned so much over the past year and I hope to continue learning more. Thank you, all of you, who have supported me and given me the opportunity to decorate…please keep them coming!

This year, I did not get a chance to bake an Easter cake but here is the cake I made last year…the one that started it all. I did a ton of research online about making marshmallow fondant (MMF) as well as how to do the figures (see aine2 on YouTube – How to make fondant cheeky chicks). I must say, I love MMF. It has been wonderful to work with and tastes delicious. On my Facebook Fan Page under the Notes tab, I have my hints and tips to MMF. I’ll copy it over to my blog soon (updated 09/14/10 - it is now posted on my blog). I had my brother and cousin help with this cake. We have 6 family members with birthdays around Easter and combined all our birthdays together with the Easter celebration…Hoppy Birthday!

12" Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, covered in buttercream then MMF.  Decorated all in MMF.
