Cakes

After planning Kara’s birthday party, and it turning out so well, Trinity has requested an arctic Webkinz party for her birthday. I am planning on making an igloo cake using the fondant to cover a cake baked in a pyrex bowl. I figured I needed some more practice with the fondant, so I am in the process of making Greg a football cake for his birthday today. I have had experience in the past with making a rounded cake from Kylie’s princess cake. The part I am nervous about is the fondant. Not sure why I am on this cake thing this year, but here are a few pictures of the other cakes I have made.

The first one was made using an 8×8 pan and 4 mini-loaf pans for Grayson’s 1st Birthday, the second one was made using the pyrex bowl, and an 8″ round cake pan for Kylie’s 6th Birthday. These both used cream cheese frosting. The last one was made using 2 8″ round cake pans and marshmallow fondant.

Below are pictures of the completed cake for Greg’s birthday. If I ever do another football cake, I have a totally different plan on doing the fondant. It actually turned out decent. Oh, and the little footballs around it are just candies made from the fondant.
