Take Me Out to the Ballgame

My very 1st Groom's cake!!!
My cousin had a Christmas wedding. She wanted to surprise her future husband with something. She totally forgot about a groom's cake, so I told her about it. She asked me if I could do it for her. I told her I can try because I've never made one before & I'm just starting to learn how to make cakes. I asked her what he likes & she told me his favorite sport is baseball. WOW, what a first for me. I did some research online & got ideas. Then I started to draw what I wanted. I was SOOO happy with what I was able to create!!! When the groom saw it, he didn't think it was a cake. He was so happy & very surprised!! He didn't even want to cut it ;}

Chocolate Marble

I took a fondant class when I was home visiting. I had already started to make cakes, but thought why not get some more experience or ideas. I do have to say the class was good, but everything I knew about working with fondant. I already knew before taking the class ;} They showed us how to marble fondant for a cake. It was a simple method, I picked my fondant pink & chocolate. I have never tasted chocolate fondant - it was the best!!
