Birthday Cake

Last week was a busy week. The boys went back to school, we had friends over for dinner and I baked a birthday cake for my friend's daughter on Saturday.

This time I used premade fondant from The Sweet Wise.  I bought a fondant mat a while ago and it came with this package of Elite Fondant. I had been using my homemade marshmallow fondant in all my cakes but I want it to used this premade and see if it was different from the one that Michael's sells.  Let me tell you, it was sooooo good not only was it easy to work with, but it tastes delicious.

This was the first time that I used "The Mat" and I'm in love with it.  It was so easy, no messy counter tops either!! Can I say it again?? ......Love it!! If you are curious about this mat go and watch their video.

The cake base was made out of three cardboard rounds put together with double sided tape. I covered it with pink cake foil from the local cake supply store.  I also covered the edge with ribbon from Hobby Lobby.

And here it's my cake:

The cake was a buttermilk yellow cake with apricot buttercream filling. Yummy!!!
