This was my first try at a Baby Shower Cake. My biller at the office is having a boy and we are having a party for her this week. So no time like now to practice my fondant skills. Actually I have made home made fondant before and I prefer it to store bought. It is cheaper and better quality. These are the first fondant flowers I have made. I bought some cutters at a Michaels's in Denver. They have a great selection of cake making stuff. I reused some plastic trays that I bought at Walmart. Flowers already made came in them and I saved the trays to make my own. They worked perfectly for shaping the flowers and the leaves. I used the hight altitude chocolate recipe for the cake. You can google Hershey's High Altitude cake recipes and that is where I found one that works beautifully at 7600 feet. I think it turned out pretty good for the first try, don't you think?
Of course Sebby had to make his own cake and decorate it too. Turned out pretty good.
