I tried my hand at fondant for the first time in making Conor's first birthday cake. I had a trusty partner (Lyndsay) who was good enough to do all the fondant kneading (which we made homemade) and color mixing. She also covered the top cake in fondant and made all the leaves. What a pair! We are so thrilled with the results, and must give credit to dear sister/aunt Hannah, who is a cake genius and gave us the inspiration and guidance.
Happy Birthday, Conor! Now we have to cut it???
