Who lives in a pineapple, under the sea?
Here's a cute little cake that I made for my son's 6th birthday. I love working with fondant. I tell everyone that it's like Play-doh for grown ups. I didn't get to have all of the fun this time as my 8 year old daughter helped me with this one. Most of Gary is her work! The boy loved it -- mainly because he wanted to eat the characters. Homemade fondant is good for that, store bought is not so much...
This was my second or third time ever using fondant. I still can't believe how long I waited to try it out. I have always been drawn to how it looks but turned off by the flavor and maybe a little intimidated to work with it. What a blessing it was to find an easy recipe and get over it all. It really is a fun creative outlet!
Not that I so much use the recipe to make it any longer... These days I just do it from memory and without much measuring. I'll pay attention to the next time I make a batch and share my method with you. Luckily it makes a ton and can be stored for a while -- that way I always have it on hand for all those cake decorating emergencies we all have! (What you don't have those? Hmmm? Just me?)
